Description of problem:
If I select Play file in xmms it opens a new dialog window to list the avaiable
files to be opened. On the intitial open it opens and lists all the files and
directories in my home directory, but if I then double click on .. in the
directory list to go up a directory to /home I get a empty list except for . and
.. If I then double click on . I get the directories and files that I should
have seen in the first place. This isn't a permissions problem, I have full
rights to see /home. I can navigate through the directory tree and it will do
this on again off again thing consistantly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start X Windows
2. start xmms
3. Right click on the window
4. Select Play file
5. Double click on ..
Actual Results: Empty list of directories and files
Expected Results: Full List of directories and files
I actually first noticed this in evolution with the file attachment selection.
This should affect any application based on gtk+ that uses the standard file
i have exactly the same bug in many different gnome applications ( GIMP, xmms ...)
it is really annoying
Is this new in the last few days? There were some GtkFileSel changes
recently that shouldn't have broken anything, but...
Fixed in gtk+-1.2.10-14
Actually, missed an intermediate build. 1.2.10-14 was already done.
Building a 1.2.10-15 now with the patch.
