Sub Clips get put in RANDOM Folders
This bug NEEDS to be fixed - it's been a problem forever. I create sub clips and half the time, they get placed in the same folder as the master clip. But the other half of the time, Premiere will bury them somewhere deep inside a random folder and it's single handedly the worst glitch the program has. PLEASE fix ASAP, thx.

This is what is working for me. Before you save your subclip, highlight the bin you want it to go - in the project panel. Then create the subclip. And it SHOULD (!) be in the bin you highlighted.

I just encountered this problem myself. Something that seems to work consistently is to highlight the master clip in the bin before pressing command-U to generate the subclip.

This has been plaguing me for a month. My most recent project (home videos, very clip heavy) has taken me an extra 10 hours to complete due to this bug.

Yep, this is pretty ridiculous and it's been an issue and known bug for years. Please fix this. It's a major time waster.
It has something to do with additional bin tabs that are open but I haven't been able to figure out how to predict the behavior. Even if you change nothing about what bins are open or tab you're on, one subclips goes where you want and the next doesn't. No matter what I do it always wants to dump them in my music bin on the project I'm working on right now for instance. Super frustrating.
FYI: subclips are going into random bins, not folders. Technically bin is the proper term and I'm stating this only to help people find their way here - I searched some combination of "subclip" and "bin" and this didn't come up right away.
This particularly happens when you have more than 1 bin window open. Premiere keeps "forgetting" to put the subclips in the last focused bin window/tab, and often you have to go hunting where the subclips ended up altogether.
