The patch looks good. However in its current form it uses the character 'N' as a shortcut in the " Configure options " dialog, but that character is already used in the "Pause after run" group box. And a suggestion - what do you think about moving the "hiddeN files last" option from " Configure options " to the "Sort order" dialog ? This way the option could be set per panel and, IMO, the "Sort order" dialog is the proper place for this option.
