  filechoosers auto complete selection stolen by clipboard programs

Bug description:
  Steps to reproduce:

  Enable a clipboard program such as Klipper/Glipper/Parcellite then:

  1. Attach a file in gmail by clicking on browse. A file selection dialog 
(File Upload) appears.
  2. Write on location the path to a file which will be auto-completed as you 
write. Use a filename that shares the beginning of the name with other files in 
the same directory. For example, foo/barbarbar and foo/barfoobar
  3. When the filename you are looking for appears completed in the location 
bar press enter.
  4. The filename selected will be foo/bar which does not correspond to any 
existing file.

  Problem (copied from upstream):

  The problem is that the file chooser's entry uses the selection in GtkEntry to
  hold state about "this is what will be inserted if the user hits Tab", but
  klipper steals the selection ownership.
