Re: [Bug-XBoard] Can't choose sound directory from interface with xboard

XBoard just pops up the standard file-browse dialog of the GTK widget set,
so this is not really an XBoard issue, but a GTK issue. My experience with
GTK is not so large that have ever seen this.

I expect that it would grey out directories for which you have no r or x
permission, because the OS would prevent it from seeing what is in ther
(in case of r), or accessing what is in there (in case of x). I don't know
if in this case it does this erroneously, or if there is a real problem
with the permission.

Perhaps you can show us the result of an 'ls -l' command given from the
'per' directory?
