To subscribers of the xforms list from "Orn E. Hansen" <oe.hansen@oehansen.pp.se> :


When I use the file selector in Linux. The entries in the file selector are

Opening a directory in the file selector, will display 'n' number of
entries, where n is equal to the number of files in that folder. But,
each entry contains only 'D', and are obviously duplicates of the first
entry in the folder, n times. Another thing with it, is that the pattern
doesn't work either, it will show an entry for all files in the folder
whatever the pattern selected.

However, this works in 'fdesign', but perhaps fdesign is statically
linked? Which suggest that this is a problem with one of the dynamically
linked libraries? I've tried both the version of xforms for libc6 and
the one for libc5, they both have the same problem here... is this a
known limitation?
