Description Dima Ryazanov 2013-03-28 22:55:22 UTC
File dialog won't open files whose names start with "~". E.g., create a file named "~foo.txt" and try to open it in any KDE app.

The tilde character is the UNIX way to reference the home directory.

Comment 3 Dima Ryazanov 2013-11-16 00:30:38 UTC
Found another filename that doesn't work: ".txt

(I know it's a special character, but it's a valid filename.)
