File chooser: When searching, files that match what you type at the beginning of the filename should appear first in the list
This behaviour changed when the typeahead feature was removed and seems a bit unpredictable/confusing as it is now. See the following two screenshots as an example:
I have several files on a directory and want to select the folder that starts with "o".
Typing "o", however, sorts a file that contains an "o" before the folder that starts with it.
In my opinion, filenames that start with the string you type should take precedence before filenames that only contain it.
This behaviour would also make the search in GtkFileChooser more consistent with the search in Nautilus.
