Description jgawera 2008-09-04 15:20:56 UTC
Choosing file ->"open project" I get a netbeans file browser with the directory combo that contains the folder 
hierarchy so I can see the current directory, and it's parent, and it's grandparent...
Choosing file->"open file" I get a file browser with the directory combo that only contians the item "Desktop". The 
current directory is not even in the combo. This is a major annoyance as I have to drill down through Desktop->c:->...
This also happens with Library->Add Jar/Folder
and probably a few other places in netbeans

A standard JFileChooser seems to have the correct behaviour.
