Since the fix has just been pushed to the awt repository, I think that 
makes sense to incorporate the required changes right into your current 
patch that introduces the GtkFileDialogPeer. Also, please apply the

I don't think we're ready for that fix yet. We would really want this 
implemented on all supported platforms at once.
