Start the SwingSet2.jar along with a accessibility tools (Scout), click
the JFileChooser and Show Plain JFileChooser, we will see an open
windows with file list inside. The file list does not have Name and
Description [1]. With a patch [2] attached, the name and description
will show as File List [3].
