Argh, decided not to return a string that must be freed from
gtk_file_selection_get_filename after all, as that would cause memory leaks in all apps that use it unless they specifically checked fot the GTk+ version. gtk_file_selection_get_filename returns the filename in the C runtime encoding. It calls g_filename_from_utf8, but copies the returned string to a static buffer, which is returned. I think this is better than returning the result from g_filename_from_utf8 directly, which would mean all apps that use it would have to free the return value. Or should this function care about this issue at all? Maybe a new function with clearly defined semantics.
