Description Murray Cumming 2006-01-19 13:56:57 UTC
I think the FileChooser should not allow the user to specify a path in a read-only directory. It should tell the user that he does not have rights to add files to that directory and let him choose a different path instead.

Otherwise, the application has to do this, and applications will do it inconsistently.
