Comments
EVALUATION The fix is to set the filename textfield path to the currently selected directory (in absolute form) when double clicked on FILES_AND_DIRECTORIES mode. The fix is specific only to filesystem folders otherwise it would return an incorrect path for special folders like "My Computer" when clicked from Desktop.
