I thought you meant keeping the address bar text while you're browsing
that directory.  I don't know about anyone else, but I usually use the
address bar as I use one in a web browser: click once and it's
highlighted, use Ctrl+Backspace for "going up" one level, etc.

I think the checkbox is a good idea, though could it be added as a flag
from the command line, or as a preference somewhere in a config dialog? 
I think it'd be better to keep the main GUI clean of something most
users would tick on or off and keep it.  If it means anything now, you
have my vote to keep the text in the bar, as I meant it in the first
