Hmm, given your hint about Tab and Shift-Tab I tried saving a file
(Ctrl-s) and then only using the keyboard to choose a directory and
name my file. I Tab and Shift-Tab did do something but I couldn't
figure out how to navigate off the list of files already present in a
directory. Perhaps this was just my unfamiliarity with this technique -
the intent of the Gtk widget library would be that it should be
navigable using expected keystrokes I'm pretty sure.
