(146/231) 3489802 - VFS Browser completion should do best match, not first match

I can reproduce this on two different boxes, both running Linux, both with 4.5 and trunk. It may behave differently on other OSes. Create two directories somewhere, e.g.:

$ mkdir long-name
$ mkdir long

Note: *order is important*.

Open the VFS browser dialog, go to the parent directory, and type "long/ <TAB>" (to make the browser go into the directory). You'll end up inside "long-name", not "long". It seems the browser is completing based on the first match of the substring given filesystem order. That makes it impossible to go into the "long" directory without using the mouse (or a really long tabbing sequence), which is annoying.
