Installed from: Compiled sources
The Select folder dialog doesn't allow to browse hidden directories.
For example goto systemsettings->about me->paths and try to change paths using the select folder dialog. You will be only able to select visible directories.
Confirmed. As the Autostart folder is a hidden folder, it seems weird not to be able to see those.
I don't have time to look into it right now though, the KFileDialog probably has a way to set the dialog so the hidden folders are shown.

Thanks Tobias, the patch works. There is only a small usability issue: when the action (show or hide) is called, all folders are collapsed. For example if you've your home directory expanded and you choose to view the hidden folders, the directory tree will be collapsed and you've to manually go back to the previously selected folder.
I'll reopen the bug as reminder.
