You have yet to explain what is so bad to design a file selector so that

developers did overshot a bit, hampering the usability for
computer-savvy people). And since GUI design and usability is not a pure
"technical" topic the illustrative answer "it was designed so that my
mother can use" is a perfectly valid answer. There very well might be no
answer that suits your implied "technical" request.

After reviewing the change, I agree it is for the worse. I was quite pleased when I stumbled on the tab completion in the GIMP. I much prefer the older flavor which includes the tab completion as well as the drop down directory selection.
