Is this a GTK+ 2 vs GTK+ 3 thing?  Because the file selectors in the
other GTK+ applications I use, such as Gimp 2.10.8, don't behave this

Anyway, I just came across KGtk <https://github.com/sandsmark/kgtk>,
wrapper for GTK+ 2/3 applications that makes them to use the KDE 5 file
dialogs. I might give it a try.
