Public bug reported:

Today, many people use resolution like 1280*1024 and even 1600*1200.

Todays file selector dialog is WAY to small. It should use a
(configurable) percent of the screen height/width.

I KNOW that this is one of the reasons people think Linux is bad. Maybe
it sounds strange, but if the first thing you see is a tiny tiny file
selector and you have to scroll forever you get get pretty dissapointed
if you are used to the windows file selector. It is better then gnomes.
Time to change that ...
