Bug Description

Binary package hint: vim

I don't care if gvim has to write 100KB per second to ~/.recently-used.xbel, as in bug #251122. I just want my bookmarks back. How am I meant to navigate around a large source tree without them? Please find some way to support GtkFileChooser in vim-gtk. Consider this a bug report or feature request, I don't mind which.

For now, I'll be compiling my own vim-gtk package with the fix for bug #251122 reverted. But that's not a solution appropriate for the bulk of users.

I second this bug. In previous Ubuntu releases there was the efficient Nautilus (?) open/save dialog.

This is definitely fixed in Natty. Gvim has the modern open/save dialog now.
