XForms: file selector bug (~)

To subscribers of the xforms list from Tristan Savatier <tristan@mpegtv.com> :

With 0.86 (Linux):

If the Directory is set to something, say, /tmp,
and I enter ~ (i.e. home) in the file selector (at the
bottom of the file selector goody), then I
get a complain that /tmp/home/tristan
does nor exist.

Xforms is smart enough to know that ~ should
be expended to my home directory (/home/tristan),
but not smart enough to realize that a home directory
is an absolute pathname, i.e. that it is
never relative to the current directory (/tmp).

I think that this is a bug...
