The fix for bug #196940 introduced a nasty regression, taken from an e-mail by Vladimir:
> Below is exceptions report which can not be converted into IZ.
> We'd like it to be fixed in 7.0 (because it is expected to be platform for Solaris Studio IDE.Next)
> The fix is simple:
> check for null after file.listFiles() and exit if null.
> as seen from exception it is in DirectoryChooserUI.ListFilesWorker (line 1070)
> And occurs in case of read only dir in path.
> In NFS env we have such situation rather often when trying to open project from co-worker /home/user/NetBeansProjects folders or other NFS paths
Should be fixed in 7.0, Marian, do you agree?
Adding the keyword to keep track of it.
To reproduce the problem, just enter /blablabla/ into the filename field
