  Restore ignores what I type into the folder box

Bug description:
  I have my computer using Deja Dup to backup everything to a particular
  folder on a secondary drive. When I try to use Deja Dup to restore a
  backup from a different folder on that drive, it does not scan that

  1. Open Deja Dup and click the Restore... button.
  2. In the Restore From Where? window, the Backup location is set to my 
external hard drive, and the Folder field is set to my current backup folder. 
From here, I try paths "a" and "b" below:
  3a. Change the text in the Folder field to be the name of the folder 
containing my previous computer's backup, and click Forward.
  4a. I am presented with a list of backups from my current backup folder, not 
from the other folder I tried to select.
  3b. Change the Backup location field to Local Folder, and now click the 
Choose Folder... button that has appeared next to the Folder field.
  4b. Browse to the mount point of my secondary drive, and select the backup 
folder that was used for my previous computer. Click OK, and then Forward.
  5b. I am presented with the message "Restore Failed" "No backups to restore"

  I'm on Ubuntu 17.10 with deja-dup 36.3-0ubuntu0.1 and duplicity

  I have attached deja-dup.gsettings to this bug report. I will add debug 
outputs in comments below.
  In those logs, it should be noted that my secondary drive is named "Octonary" 
and is mounted at "/media/paul/Octonary". My current backup folder is 
"/media/paul/Octonary/Ubuntu Backup 3", and the backup folder of my previous 
computer is "/media/paul/Octonary/Ubuntu Backup 2".
