Bug Description

Hello,

Why does gedit show an error message when the command line argument is a directory?
I have some c-files in my $HOME/src folder and I start gedit with:

$ gedit ~/src

Users prefer that Gedit would show the directory and its files in the side-bar.
Users prefer not to see and error message.
Thanx a lot.
