Description of problem:
Gnome "Browse.." interface. When using the "Browse.." interface under
programs like Run Program or Search For Files it would be nice if this
interface was closer KDE's FILE browse. Not being able to
navigate the file-system using anything other then ". or .." is rather
limiting, especially if your users don't now what ". or .." means :).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open up any gnome application that can brwose for files.
Actual Results: Much harder to navigate the filesystem then in KDE or windows.
Expected Results: Easier navigation.

We aren't going to resolve it on the Red Hat level as it would mean massive
code divergence from upstream. We may contribute to a fix within a gnome.org
context and then get the fix in the next GNOME release.
