I reopen the bug, as the problem is rather similar in another case: make sure you have files starting with the same latter in the directory (eg. c1.txt, c2.txt, c3.txt). Assume you want to open c3.txt. In the Location box type "c", you will see all the files starting with "c". At the same time in the filelist area the focus will jump to the first file starting with "c", here "c1.txt".
Now select "c3.txt" in the completion box (with the mouse or by going down, but not pressing enter). "c3.txt" is inserted into the location bar (the focus above is still on c1.txt).
Click on Open button, and you will see c1.txt is opened instead of c3.txt. If you press Enter instead of clicking on Open, it works.

I can't say how many times I attached a wrong file to a mail because of this bug...
