Not at all. I didn't even realized it was there.

Another alternative would be to make it display recently or most often 
browsed directories - that's what Firefox does. This could actually be a 
useful feature.

Also, perhaps I should file a bug(?) for it, I found that in 
"View/Location Selector" menu checkboxes are swapped. That is, when 
"Pathbar Style" is selected a toolbar is shown, and vice versa. Perhaps 
it is better to use here mutually exclusive radiobuttons anyway.
