Bug Description

In Feisty, normally I see several items ("bookmarks") at the left side of GTK+ open dialog (e.g. in gedit):
File System
Floppy Drive
Network Servers

But when I run "gksudo gedit", then the open dialog contain only these "bookmarks":
Network Servers

Note that "Root" is home of root user, not the root of file system.

The "File System" item is missing, this is an annoying when I use it frequently to edit configuration in /etc/...

IMO it's a serious usability problem.
