Dan said:

And indeed, recent choices may have nothing to do with the current
filename, AFAICT.  (only if you opened the file recently, and made a
minor change without doing too much else, will the filename will be in
recent history...  ) ...   unless i am missing your point?

i can't deduce anything more from your one-liner of:
