Sorry, not yet and I am surprised that it happens both with the
newest version and the rather ancient 1.0.90 version since this
bug hasn't been reported before - at least as far as I remember.
I tried the same (i.e. entering the file name in the input box
and then pressing the <ENTER> key) with some programs I have around
and couldn't reproduce the effect. Since I have seen some problems
with certain window managers, can you tell me what you're using
(KDE, Gnome, fvwm2 etc.)? That's a long shot but perhaps it helps
me to reproduce this behavior... Should you have the demo programs
compiled could you also try out e.g. the 'fbrowse' program (where
a file selector box pops up when you click onto the button labeled
'Load') to see if this happens always or only with certain programs?

                               Best regards, Jens
