I can confirm this behaviour on my Ubuntu 10.04 LTS box running Gnome 2.30.2 after upgrading from ASP 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206. In the first release ASP used the system default dialogue boxes, which I found a bit more convenient when importing a large number of folders into catalogs. Once your fingers are used to the key sequences (Ctrl-I, Up, Up, Bksp, Down, Enter...), this can be done really fast without using a mouse. (In all honesty, this is still possible using slightly different key strokes, although these are different from the default Gnome dialog boxes and miss a highlighted 'cursor' so that it is hard to see what you are doing).

This indeed somewhat changes the dialog appearance, but it does not bring back the original dialog box itself. Anyway, not a big deal - like the OP I just prefer the original settings because they integrate better into Gnome's default GTK+ desktop environment. Any other ideas on how to get those back?
