[arch-general] Weird GTK+ open directory chooser dialog behaviour

Hi list

I don’t recall when this started occurring (as most applications that 
open files open them one at a time so I seldom come across it), but the 
directory selection dialog seems to always open my home directory 
regardless of what I navigate to. The programs that spawn the dialog 
subsequently crash, as they’re trying to open *every file in my home 
directory* instead of a specific directory. Googling found no results 
except for [1] on our forum, and the OP thinks it has to do with 
wxWidgets, but I get this behaviour with every GTK directory open dialog.

Has anyone encountered this? Or is my computer also somewhat beserk?
