I notice that the new File->Open dialog used with GTK+2.4 doesn't do any remembering of previously browsed directories - either between multiple uses of the dialog in the same instance of ethereal, or upon initial use of the dialog.
gui.fileopen_remembered_dir seems to be getting updated, though, but I 
assume it's just being ignored by the new dialog.
Is this intentional for some reason?  I'm not sure what the purposes of 
the Add and Remove buttons are in the new dialog, they appear to be 
perpetually disabled for me.  I'm assuming they're there to allow a use 
to add "shortcut" directories, though that doesn't really take the 
place of "remembering" the previous dir.
I'm assuming this is a bug?  I've only used GTK+2.4 on Windows (and I 
haven't parsed through the new code) so I'm not sure if this is a 
Win32-only thing.
Thanks,
Ian
