I can't find info on this anywhere, but I could swear that when I used to view hidden files in nautilus, what showed up were only the ".name" ones (this would have been back in 10.04). But now it also shows all the backup "name~" files as well. There are loads of these automatically generated, and it's very frustrating to have to wade through them in order to work in my hidden folders.

I have been googling all over the place, but I can't find anyone mentioning this. Is there any way that I can view only the ".name" files and not the "name~" ones?
