Additional Information

Because the object filter is not recursive (note it's a "filter", not a "search") it is necessary to display the folders to enable one to be opened for subsequent examination; however, this does not work very well when it's a named folder that's being looked-for. With the fix in place, all folders will still be displayed except when filtering on "Folders " only.
