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?
