The file chooser’s initial directory is unpredictable since 3.30
I’m not sure if this is a gedit bug, a GTK bug, or something else. Please redirect as appropriate.
Steps to reproduce
- Edit multiple files in gedit tabs
- Press CTRL+O to open the file chooser to select an additional file to be edited
The file chooser starts by showing the parent directory of the file being edited in the current tab, as it did with gedit 3.28 and earlier versions.
The initial state of the file chooser is unpredictable. It might be the expected directory, or the user’s home directory, or the list of recent files.
