[Bug 75464] Alt-up keystroke sometimes inactive in GtkFileChooser

Public bug reported:

Suggestion for improvement...

The GTK FileChooser has a keystroke (ALT+UP_ARROW) for moving to the
parent directory. However this keystroke is inactive when the file list
context-search is active, and pressing 'ESC' to deactive the context-
search seems unintuitive.

1. gedit
2. file...open...
3. move up to top level directory
4. type 'usr' followed by <enter>
5. type 'shar', but don't press enter
5. type alt-up (nothing happens)

In this case it would be nice if the 'alt-up' keystroke could bubble up
to the FileChooser and not just be ignored by the context search box.
Don't know how hard that might/might not be though.

Thanks for all the great work.
