Cannot get GtkFileSelection->complete to work, using current release.

Took online Manual example of object construction, and added a complete stmt.  Results invalid.

Reproduce code:
//Creating and initialising the file selection prompt
$filePrompt = new GtkFileSelection('GtkFileSelection Demo');
    array('Gtk', 'main_quit')


//Adding a quit button that destroys the prompt
    array($filePrompt, 'destroy')
//Add an OK button that displays the file selected on click
$filePrompt->ok_button->set_label('Show the file');
$filePrompt->ok_button->connect('clicked', 'showFile');
//Callback function that displays the file name
function showFile($okbutton)
    $filePrompt = $okbutton->get_toplevel();
    $fileName = $filePrompt->get_filename();
    $message = new GtkMessageDialog(
        'You selected: ' . $fileName
//Show the prompt and start the main loop

Expected result:
You should see only txt extension files in results window.  

Actual result:
You get all files listed

This is a problem in the gtk libraries themselves, not in the PHP wrapper.  PHP just calls the underlying C method

GtkFileSelection is deprecated as well

Try using GtkFileChooserDialog with  the set_filter method instead

GtkFileSelection isn't marked as deprecated...???

GtkFileSelection has been deprecated since Gtk 2.12, so the 2.0.1 release of PHP-GTK does not yet mark it deprecated.

However the example code for me is working perfectly.

Run your script and then in the selection box hit the tab key

Notice how only files/folders that match *.txt are now shown?

You can probably simulate the keypress in your code to make the filter action transparent to the user.
