By default ScITE has the annoying setting, that it will only show 'all source files' in the open file dialog.

To change this behaviour, open scite as root user (or use sudo), then:

Options >> Open Global Options File
ctrl-f
button bottom right 'match whole words only'

to find something like this:

# Each platform has a different idea of the most important filters
if PLAT_WIN
        all.files=All Files (*.*)|*.*|
        top.filters=All Source|$(source.files)|$(all.files)
if PLAT_GTK
        all.files=All Files (*)|*|Hidden Files (.*)|.*|
        top.filters=All Source|$(source.files)|$(all.files)
# As OS X only greys out filtered files, show all as default
if PLAT_MAC
        all.files=All Files (*.*)|*.*|
        top.filters=$(all.files)All Source|$(source.files)|

Change to:

# Each platform has a different idea of the most important filters
if PLAT_WIN
        all.files=All Files (*.*)|*.*|
        top.filters=$(all.files)
if PLAT_GTK
        all.files=All Files (*)|*|Hidden Files (.*)|.*|
        top.filters=$(all.files)
# As OS X only greys out filtered files, show all as default
if PLAT_MAC
        all.files=All Files (*.*)|*.*|
        top.filters=$(all.files)

Save, quit, restart, works.
