Public bug report changed:

The behavior is like this for me:

[Spatial Windows]
- As long as I didn't toggle visibility of hidden files via the menu, toggling the preference option works as expected.
- Toggling the menu option has no immediate effect and once I toggled it once, the preference option has no effect either (probably because it's overridden by the menu option). 
- Reloading has no effect either, but closing and opening the window updates backup file visibility correctly.

[Browser Windows]
- Here I can't get the menu option to have any effect whatsoever, but the preference option works as expected as long as I _don't_ touch the menu option.
- Once I used the menu option, I have to close and open the window again with the preference option _enabled_ to make it work again.

That's pretty screwded up.
