I have now reverted the default to "buffer" instead of "favorites", see

changeset:   69781:a7529ac9c1c5

clarified default (amending ca9780325a21): it also affects "open-file"
dialog, which should be "buffer";

The favorites are very important, but many long-term users still don't
know about them. I need to find another way to make them easily accessible.
