This works like a CHARM!

I just realised how useful the alt-left-arrow functionality is... Nice work, and thanks.

I just committed another change to core.

Alt+Up now goes to the parent directory.
Alt+Left and Alt+Right go back and forward in the directory stack.
I can't figure out why the VFSDirectoryEntryTable never receives the
initial keybaord events.
it seems when it is a floating dialog, it only gets keyboard events
delegated from the
VFSFileNameField, and somewhere else in the code, there is some
focus-overriding that prevents the directorentrytable from seeing the
left and right arrows before they are consumed by the filenamefield.
