I will try to fix the behavior of this dialog, but I have to say, the
behavior is very confusing to me. There is a lot of event delegation,
and it's not clear how the keystrokes are handled (which widget sees
it first) when certain widgets have focus.
Combine that with the fact that the "file - open" dialog uses many of
the same components as the dockable file system browser, and they
share a lot of the same code, but differ in that there is an extra
text field that gets initial focus when you are doing file - open.
I will take some more looks at this before we release the next version of jEdit,
but if someone else wants to take a crack at fixing it too, I'd appreciate it.
