Bug Description

Binary package hint: network-manager-openvpn

When I try to select my files, for my key, certificate etc, it selects a folder from the list.

An example would be if I had the key and certificates in my home folder, which contains the default folders.
I go to the network manager and create a new vpn connection.
I select a new openvpn connection with tls, fill in relevant info.
I select x.crt, x.key, x.csr in the relevant fields.
I click apply.
I go back to edit and it shows pictures, documents folders, and maybe 1 file that I selected, if I'm lucky.

Work around it to put the certificates/key in a folder that only contains the files and the selector then works just fine.

same here. I think. I select the key, and certs for my openvpn config and when I close window and go back to verify changes all the changes are screwed up.
