  Nautilus File Chooser Doesn't Show User Dirs

Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  # Symptoms:
  In the pane on the left, there usually are "Places" items (Home, Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures, Videos, Trash) which are also shown in the file chooser. The problem is that items in the "Places" category can go missing in the file chooser.

  # How to replicate the bug:
  Open ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs and change some of the directories. Make sure these directories actually exist. Restart your machine. What you will find is that Nautilus will work just fine and use the new directories. But if you use the file chooser (just try saving this website by pressing ctrl + S in your web browser), everything in "Places" that isn't the default value any more, will not be displayed.
