Default Area for a project

It would really be nice to be able to specify the default Area for a Project.  Many times someone opens a new case and forgets to set the Area. 

In this post  Michael gave me a workaround where I could, for example, change the name of the "Misc" area to " Misc" (note the space in the beginning).  That worked, and forced that area to always be the default displayed, but now I can't do that anymore.  It seems like the code trims off leading spaces.

Did this change in a recent version?

It must have changed the code... but you can still probably go into the database and change the name manually in there and it should stick.

good point, ok thanks.  Is this something that can be added to a future release?  do you see this as a useful feature?

I tried modifying the area in the database directly, adding the space before "misc" but it doesn't help.  Fogbugz seems to choose itself what the default area is when I create a new case.  How does Fogbugz decide the default area?
