Default Linux - NewScript... - broken file extension selector (FIXED)

In Linux, when creating a new ReaScript, clicking "NewScript..." button in Actions window opens the save dialog. But the extension selector does not force the real extension of the file. And so when no extension (.lua) is manually typed-in, then the file always gets "*.eel" extension.

It took me long to find out why the LUA code I am trying to paste in ReaIDE is full of errors until I accidentally looked at the scrip extension in titlebar which in fact was .EEL

In Windows it works as expected, if you select the extension from selector, it gets added to the filename edit line (and also filters the directory view).

In Linux it only does filter the filetype of the directory view.

(REAPER v6.35rc5 Linux x64, Linux Lite 4.0 x64)

Thanks, Justin.

I don't think I am experienced enough to rebuilt "swell" myself
I just started to use Linux more than before to not have to depend solely on Microsoft behavior

No hurry, I can wait for an upcoming build. It does not affect me much as I am already aware of that. I mainly wanted to report what I have observed.

Yes, it works.

Only difference against the Windows version is that
- in Windows when I type "test" as filename and then choose "Lua files (*.lua)" filetype from dropdown selector, then the ".lua" extension is immediately added to the filename in the edit line (= "test.lua")
- in Linux (this rc5a) the edit line shows still only the filename without the extension (it is correctly added to filename in the end when confirming and file is saved, but not visually before saving)

EDIT: Also in Windows, the "Lua files (*.lua)" filetype is pre-selected by default, while in Linux (rc5a) it is the "EEL2 files (*.eel)" one.

Justin, I just checked today's official v6.35 release and all "issues" reported in my previous post are fixed, solved.

Many thanks
