Huh? I've been collecting the wishes and problems regarding the file
selector, making sure that the GTK+ developers are aware of the
problem and even patching the file selector myself. We have also done
quite some changes to the gimp file dialogs since the switch to the
new GtkFileChooser widget. If you want to suggest that I would be
ignoring the complaints, I really don't know what you've been smoking.

Perhaps you should stop looking at the dialog and just blindly enter
paths. It works surprisingly well.

to be fixed. Asking us to revert to the old widget is however not an
