[Slackware 14.0] [PATCH] Deselect "Recently Used" in GTK+ file chooser by default

The GTK+ 2.4.10 file chooser in Slackware 14.0 shows an annoying behavior: Every time when opening the dialog "Recently Used" under "Places" is selected. This means when opening a file the Location bar is missing (and not accessible via Ctl-L until you select a folder from "Places"). When saving you have to type in a full path or select a folder manually before.

This GNOME invention is hard-coded into GTK+ 2.4.10. Thankfully someone created a patch which reverts a to more reasonable default.

I modified the GTK+2 package from Slackware 14.0 and want to share it here:

Rebuilt GTK+ 2.4.10 package for Slackware 14.0 i486 with patch applied
