Default keep hidden files hidden in gui apps (xpdf)

Last spring I had a question about xpdf's file picker. Fabio has just
emailed me the following solution. I'm reposting it here in case anyone
else has this problem:

Hello, XPdf's file dialogs are part of Motif. If your distro uses the
OpenMotif implementation, you just have to add the following line to
your ~/.Xdefaults file:

*fileFilterStyle: filter_hidden_files

Then either restart your X server or run

xrdb -merge ~/.Xdefaults

The next time you start XPdf you will not see hidden files in the file

If you use another implementation of Motif, (lesstif, ...), use the
following command to know how to filter hidden files:

man XmFileSelectionBox
