(62/231) 2204124 - File browser dives into wrong directory

To reproduce the issue, do the following (on Linux):

1. $ mkdir /tmp/x /tmp/x_2
$ touch /tmp/x/y /tmp/x_2/z

2. Open the file browser: File -> Open ...

3. Type into the line File Name: /tmp/x/y and hit <TAB> for auto completion

The file browser cannot find the file since it tries to read the file y from directory /tmp/x_2. Seems like autocompletion extends the segments of the path.

I'd expect it to open /tmp/x/y.

What a weird bug. Reproducible in 5.0pre1.
