In previous versions, it was possible to open files in directories that start
with a period, or to save them there.  The "Show hidden files and directories"
checkbox is no longer there, and the dialogs don't list those hidden directories.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.In the file menu, select Save file
2.look for the directory that starts with a period.


Actual Results:  
The hidden directories are not visible.

Expected Results:  
Hidden directories should be visible.
can you right-click the file listing and choose "show hidden files"?
Marking invalid.  Sounds like reporter is using the native GTK2 dialog now, and
for that the steps in comment 1 work.  Please reopen if I've misunderstood
something.
