OK I went back to my notes on Duplicati threads and here is whats going on
with 'File Browser':
/Duplicati use the system file browser, which uses the OS settings for
showing hidden files. On Linux, I think this is somewhat untrue because the
WinForms folder browser is not a native one. One more reason to speed up
(Mono) 2.0 as that will have more native folder/file browsers./

So, even though I can enable Nautilus to show hidden files, due to Winforms
not being Native, its not knowing the show hidden switch is made. This looks
like it may be a Gnome/Winforms issue would anyone agree? IMHO its crippling
an excellent application in Duplicati.
