People assumed that typing the first few characters of a filename would
make the file chooser jump to the first filename in the list that
started with those characters.  Instead, they would jump to a filename
they didn't expect:  type "re" and it jumps to "andrea.txt", instead of
"resume.txt", which is what they expected.
