   There are no changes in the GTK+-2.6 fileselector that would be
   visible on a screenshot. What has been improved is that a couple of
   keybindings have been added and some of the focus problems have been
   eliminated. These changes improve usability of the file chooser a lot
   and I think that it can now really be called an improvement over the
   old GtkFileSelection widget. But of course you will disagree with me.

I thought it was supposed to allow actually typing in a filename?  The
really bad point of the 2.4 file selector is that (at least as far as
I can see) it only allows selecting a file, not typing the pathname
(at least, I don't see any text entry box!)
