BTW, that CTRL-L is displayed as the hotkey in /what/ menu?  This is
usability?  I had read about the problem in Gnome (but didn't know the
CTRL-L shortcut, again, thanks), but didn't realize it was a GTK
(un)usablilty (mis)feature as well, and dumped them in general long ago
due to this sort of crippling, and hadn't seen it.  I'm definitely
inclined to agree with Linus on this one.  Yeah, I'd miss the browse
button too, but the dialog simply loses huge amounts of functionality
if either the point/click/browse or the text or combo box for directly
typing it in, is missing.

Again, thanks.  Ctrl-L?  How was /that/ supposed to be obvious?  <shaking
