This is fairly late on the discussion, and hopefully (!) wont dig up the
flameware YET AGAIN to the surface, but there's a "Show hidden files"
menu entry in the context menu on the file dialog's file list. It works
nicely, try it. :-)

Also, personally I like the new file selector _a lot_ more than the old.
Drag some bookmarks to the left side, for places you often need to
tab-complete into, it really is handy. Yes, it is different from what
you were used to. Please try to be open minded.

Most people seem to have a weird idea that "regular users from windows"
really want and need to access files in hidden directories with the file

Just because you were used to the old one, does not necessarily mean it
is the best interface for everyone. The old one was regarded sucky for a
LONG time. We just learned to use it. Do the same for the new, please
and lets move on. We can improve the new one once we can leave the past
behind :)
