Description Shane R. Stixrud 2002-08-26 01:54:42 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; Q312461)

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):

How reproducible:

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.

You can track this issue at http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=29087

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.
