           Summary: filechooser crash
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: gtk+2.0
        AssignedTo: seb128 at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: jani at ubuntu.com

Noticed in evince open dialog but turned out to be a gtk bug
If the filechooser adds filters using gtk_file_filter_add_pixbuf_formats
(filter) as evince does _and_
if the directory it is opening in contains a file which ends in .ac
(configure.ac for instance) it crashes
in strcmp() in some gtk_filter_filter private function.
Maybe other extensions trigger it too not just .ac
Works on breezy, only latest gtk on dapper crashes.

Reproduce with the following script, try with a.ac and without it in the current

import gtk

fc = gtk.FileChooserDialog("Pig", None, gtk.FILE_CHOOSER_ACTION_OPEN,
                                (gtk.STOCK_CANCEL, gtk.RESPONSE_CANCEL,
                                gtk.STOCK_OPEN, gtk.RESPONSE_OK))

ff = gtk.FileFilter()
