Bug Description

When renaming a file, nautilus auto selects the whole file name, but excludes the file extension. (e.g. ignoring the part after the last dot). This is very efficient because in most cases the file extension needs to stay the same.

When renaming a folder, nautilus acts the same as with an file. This means the namepart after the last dot is not selected when renaming a folder. This is contra productive with most folder names, because dots are never a file extension in folders.
