Baobab misunderstand folder selection and try to create a folder when it's really a selection action

Reproducible:
1.- Open Baobad
2.- Select open folder
3.- Move one level up from your home folder to home, I did use [<] button
4.- Press open button

At this point a message dialog appear:

The folder could not be created
Error creating directory: File exists

Expected:
   user home folder selected for analyze

works fine here, what i did was, Analyzer -> Scan Folder -> Pressed "<" on the filechooser and select the home folder, then press open, baobab starts to scan my folder there, is that what you're describing ? if not could you add a more clear steps to reproduce the issue? Thanks Manuel.

Changed in gnome-utils (Ubuntu):
assignee: nobody → Ubuntu Desktop Bugs (desktop-bugs)
importance: Undecided → Low
status: New → Incomplete

Do not select any folder, just press open after "<", like if you
decide to inspect the user's home folder after "<"
