I have noticed, in my Evolution at home (CentOS 5.2 x86_64, Evo
2.12.3), that whenever I open a file access window (e.g., to save a
message or an attachment to a file) that the file/directory list in
the window shows all my "hidden" files and directories, and I can't
find a switch that would turn this off (or on, for that matter).

This is really annoying because of the huge number of (standard)
hidden files and directories in my home directory, and a number of
others where I also use them - I have to scroll past all of those to
get anywhere near the unhidden directories where I usually want them
to go.

This has been happening since at least CentOS 5.1, maybe 5.0, and
their attendant versions of Evo (and GNOME - 2.16.0).

Never mind - apparently if you right-click in the file list and select
"show hidden files", it sticks system-wide.
