Bug filed originally with Novell:

When you edit your download preferences to be able to select where to save file downloads, downloading files will fail if you browse to a folder.  More details in the bug filed with Novell.  Is not a SUSE specific bug.  Happens with downloaded from

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
Happens ~90% of the time.
1. Edit -> Preferences -> Downloads, Ask me where to save....
2. Find a file to download
3. Save to Disk, Browse for other folders
4. Select a folder, click save
5. (If there are subdirectories higlighted) it will continue following subdirectories until there are no more while you keep pressing save.
6. Finally, when no more subdirectories, it will close.  But the file will not exist in any of the folders you clicked save in.

Actual Results:  
TA-DA!  No file downloaded.

Expected Results:  
I expect the file to be saved.  Additionally, it should be in the folder that I choose.
This is a bug in an old version of GTK+ --- the GtkFileChooser widget would erroneously select the first entry in file lists when navigating into a folder in SAVE mode.  Can you please update to a newer version of GTK+?
it's INVALID for us, I guess.
