I assume that this is with the openoffice.org and not the gnome folderpicker
dialog but I had no problem with 1.9.124-3, when the dir exist of course. but
when it's not then the dialog reports that the expanded path doesn't exist, not
the file://~/. With the gnome dialog, then the ctrl+l and enter of ~/ also does
the right thing.
Comment 2 Paul F. Johnson 2005-08-22 05:15:32 EDT
It's with the OpenOffice dialogs and I can reproduce it on 4 different boxes.
Must be just me
