The idea is that if a folder path is passed, the file manager simply opens at
that folder.
But if a full file path is passed, the file manager opens at that folder, and
then highlights the proper file.
It's a thing of beauty, I tell you :-)

Anyway I've long since written my own script to do that (and using another
filemanager nowadays) so feel free to ignore.
