the gedit filechooser box does not have (at least an obvious) way to
select filesystem directories that are not under the user's home

i want to edit /etc/hosts -- i can do it by right-clicking /etc/hosts in
nautilus and selecting "open in editor", or can drag it into gedit, but it
seems like i should be able to choose it somehow from within gedit.

the older gedit (ie gnome 2.6) that i have on my FC2 machines has a
"filesystem" option that i can select then i can go anywhere in the file

i seem to remember some posts on the gnome boards a while back about this,
but i don't remember the "answers"
