   The GTK+ 2.4 file-chooser already allows you to type in a filename
   after you press Ctrl-L. In GTK+-2.6 however you just start typing
   and navigate to the file using the typeahead feature of the
   treeview. You will only sometimes need to use the Ctrl-L popup.

That's terribly obvious :-(  If the entry box isn't visible, how is
anyone to know that you can actually do this?
