Description Nathan G. Grennan 2002-04-17 17:59:37 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020408

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):

How reproducible:

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

Additional info:

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
selection dialog.

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...
Comment 3 Owen Taylor 2002-04-17 21:00:30 EDT
Fixed in gtk+-1.2.10-14
Comment 4 Owen Taylor 2002-04-17 21:10:52 EDT
Actually, missed an intermediate build. 1.2.10-14 was already done.
Building a 1.2.10-15 now with the patch.
