JFileChooser on Vista: Cannot enter user or "Public" directory

    Details

      Backports

        Description

        JFileChooser won't go into the user or "Public" directory if attempted from the "Desktop" folder (Win L&F) on Vista:

        - open file chooser
        - click "Desktop" button on the left
        - try to enter either your own or "Public" directory -
          it won't go in. No exceptions are being thrown on the
          console.
        - you can enter the user dir if you use some other
          route (like c: -> c:/users/ -> c:/users/<user dir>)
             
        I've verified that older Win32 app (WinZip) could enter
        the same directory from the "Desktop" folder.
