Description:
There are many options which require putting in either a directory or file name.   These options should have a file dialog to make it easier to pick which one you want.  
A few examples of the options are:
base_dir
tmpdir
datadir
ft_stopword_file
innodb_data_home_dir
innodb_log_group_home_dir

These options all require you to pick a file/directory and would be much easier if they had a possibility of using a file chooser.  This would only work when doing things locally of course, but since you can currently only edit my.cnf files locally, that shouldn't be a problem.

How to repeat:
Check out the Startup Variables options.  
Try to remember the name of a really long directory name and type it in correctly.

Suggested fix:
N/A
