Ambiguous file name in warning dialog when adding files

Bug Description

Binary package hint: brasero

 apt-cache policy brasero
  Installed: 2.29.91-0ubuntu2
  Candidate: 2.29.91-0ubuntu2
  Version table:
 *** 2.29.91-0ubuntu2 0

I'm working with an Apple Mac OSX 10.4 installation CD image. It began as a .dmg and was converted to .img using dmg2img as per the Ubuntu help wiki instructions. The .img hfsplus file-system is loop-mounted at /mnt/hfs/.

When adding all files under /mnt/hfs/ to a new data project Brasero shows a modal dialog box saying:

 Do you really want to add "English.lproj" to the selection?

 The children of this directory will have 7 parent directories.
 Brasero can create an image of such a file hierarchy and
 burn it; but the disc may not be readable on all operating
 Note: Such a file hierarchy is known to work on Linux.

The problem here is that "English.lproj" exists in lots of sub-directories within the directory-tree being added to the project. Checking with 'find' shows 210 occurrences:

find /mnt/hfs -name 'English.lproj' 2>/dev/null | wc -l

The dialog should give the full path to the file as an additional element in the dialog, so as not to make the headline title harder to read, but still ensuring the user knows the exact file being reported.
