can't set custom file description in JFileChooser details view

    Details

      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.6.0_03"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_03-b05)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0_03-b05, mixed mode)

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Microsoft Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack2
      Microsoft Windows 2000 5.00.2195 Service Pack 4

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      I have been using a custom FileSystemView with JFileChooser to generate custom file descriptions for certain types of files. This is an integral feature of my application and has been working perfectly under JRE v1.5.x for a long time. But when I made the move to JRE v1.6 I found this function is broke. My custom getSystemTypeDescription method in MyFileSystemView is ignored. Also, my custom type header text is ignored. The type header text is set by :

      UIManager.put("FileChooser.fileTypeHeaderText", "My Description");


      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Create a new class MyFileSystemView that extends FileSystemView. Generate a new getSystemTypeDescription method to return the custom file type description. Delegate all other methods to FileSystemView.getFileSystemView(). Change the file type header text to the custom name. Create a new JFileChooser and set its FileSystemView to the MyFileSystemView. Then call showDialog on the JFileChooser and switch to the details view. Under JRE v1.5.x the file type header will be set to the custom name, and the type descriptions will be set to the custom descriptions. Under JRE v1.6.0, the standard system file view descriptions are used.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      I expect JRE v1.6.0 to work the same as JRE v1.5.x.
      ACTUAL -
      The JRE v1.5 file chooser dialog can be viewed here:

      The JRE v1.6 file chooser dialog can be viewed here:

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
