           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2

  System -> Administration -> Login Screen Setup

then go to the 'GTK+ Greeter' tab and click the 'Image' radio button.

then click 'Browse'.

The file browser that appears doesn't let me right-click on the right-hand pane
to get a context menu allowing me to "Show Hidden Files".  Every other GNOME
file browser I'm aware of does let me show hidden files in that way.
