(I've seen a similar report from a Windows user, too.)

John, it looks like before commit 34bfbdd99ac80a8 (Filter file
choosers by mimetype instead of file name), which was first
released in 0.7.8, we selected files for the Open dialog on the
basis of extension.  Following that commit, though, we select
files only on the basis of mime type.  Would it be wise to allow
either kind of criterion for filtering files?

The commit doesn't mention a rationale for the change, and I
don't remember either.
