Description dam5s 2008-03-04 11:15:13 UTC
It would be better that the "go to file" tool permits to look automatically for files which names *contains* the typed 
string, instead of files which name start with the typed string. Like in Textmate, iTunes, Spotlight...

Because if you have a lot of files starting with the same string, it is useful to type something else than the 
beginning of the filename and not having to use wildcards for that.

+1; this issue is over a year old, is it that hard to implement?
