I'm running emacs-23.3 with ecb-2.40 and have noticed that the file browser does not show .* directories.

For example, the .emacs.d folder does not show up on the file browser, even though I can find files inside that folder and then the full path including .emacs.d shows up in the History window.

Has anyone run into this before and fixed it?

i think ecb file browser is just a wrapper for dired.. in which case take a look at your 'dired-omit-files' variable using 'C-h v'. i have mine set as

"^\\.?#\\|^\\.$\\|^\\...+$"

which omits temp emacs files, the (pointless) link to current directory, and finally, all files beginning with '.', being mindful to not remove the useful '..' link. so try,

M-: (setq dired-omit-files "^\\.?#\\|^\\.$")

..and see if that does the trick for you. if so, pop it in yours .emacs (without the M-:)
