File menu > Save As > Save dialog > Browse for other folders shows a menu that, 
according to the tooltip, is to "[s]elect which types of files are shown". Why 
isn't there a menu option to show all the types that may be present? A user may 
wish to choose a name for a new file that differs from or is similar to that of 
an existing file and seeing them all helps that.

I'm using OOo Writer 2.4.0, without Java Runtime Environment, on Linux Fedora 
Core 4. Information initializing your query form is irrelevant, as it's from a 
public terminal.

Thank you.
