Not only that, if you set 'show hidden files' to Off, directory entries
starting with a dot will be hidden and thus so will this directory.

And (as soon as we can) Rockbox can create that directory itself if not
already present.

I think we need to offer more fancier filter options, as I don't think a
"mp3/m3u"-filter should show other files than mp3 and m3u, or it should be
renamed. (And soon enough people will want to see the .wps files too etc)
