Ugh -- sorry, I have been tweaking the bug system today and forgot to
undo something.  Fixed now.

I'd file this report for you, but there's no need in this case, since
there's already this bug:

I looked, and I don't think that the problem is strictly from that
piece of code.  It looks like the GTK code in
"collects/mred/private/wx/gtk/filedialog.rkt" is assuming plain
patterns instead of doing several calls to
`gtk_file_filter_add_pattern' with each pattern.

But in addition, the filters at that point seem to have already been
split so that when (["Foo" "*.bar;*.baz"]) is used, then by the time
it gets to the gtk code it's already (["Foo" "*.bar"] ["Foo" "*.baz"]),
and I didn't find yet the code that does that.  (Fixing the GTK part
is likely making that splitting unnecessary.)
