	I'm running the Linux binary of Openoffice2 (from pkgsrc) on an
	up-to-date -current system.  When I use ^O to open a file, it can't
	list any such directories.

	Here's a shell sequence:

	# mount -t mfs /dev/wd0b /mnt
	# cp ~smb/.profile /mnt/foo.txt

	# umount /mnt
	# mount -t tmpfs /dev/wd0b /mnt
	# cp ~smb/.profile /mnt/foo.txt

	# umount /mnt                  
	# mount -t mfs /dev/wd0b /mnt  
	# cp ~smb/.profile /mnt/foo.txt

	# umount /mnt

	Right after each 'cp', I uniconized OpenOffice2, typed ^O, typed

		/mnt/ [ENTER]

	in the box.  For the mfs file system, it showed foo.txt; for the tmpfs 
	file system, it showed nothing.  I can open the file by typing its 
	name, so it's annoying rather than critical.  Working in a subdirectory 
	didn't help.
	See above
	No fix, but you can bypass the problem by typing the full pathname
	of the file you want to open into the dialog box.  That is, it can
	open files; it just can't list the directories they're in.
