Bug Description

I configured Nautilus so that by default :
- files and folders are sorted by modification time
- folders are NOT sorted before files
It seems that the "save as ..." window has it's own way of sorting files and folders :
- always sorted by name
- always folders sorted before files
This inconsistency is truly annoying for me.

>>> Yes, just do what I described above :
- configure nautilus so that files and folders are sorted by modification time, and folders are not sorted before files
- open a "save as..." window
- folders are sorted before files, and everything is sorted by name

 * What locale and ubuntu version do you use?

@Sebastien Bacher
Sorry if it is not clear, I just try to describe what I see. I guess now that the "save as..." window is from GTK. I thought it was Nautilus also. I don't know how things work.
So yes, I guess that my issue is that the sort criterious are not shared between gtk and nautilus.

@mac_v
I think it is the same kind of problem yes : GTK and Nautilus don't act the same way. When I configured Nautilus, I thought it would be applied also to the "save as..." window.
