Bug report #16727
Importing files from GDB containing a .shp file

When using the, Add Vector Layer -> Directory -> Type= "OpenFIleGDB" and browsing to a Geodatabase created by ArcGIS, QGIS presents the user with the layers available in the GeoDatabase.
However i recently placed a shapefile into my GeoDatabase in windows explorer by accident. When trying to open my Geodatabase using the above method in QGIS i am now only presented with the shapefile that i misplaced even though i selected the "OpenFIleGDB" option in the import dialog.
It would be nice if QGIS would treat the "folder/Geodatabase" as a geodatabase when "OpenFIleGDB" is selected and not as a folder.

"...placed a shapefile into my GeoDatabase in windows explorer by accident..."
it seems to me a very (very) edge case, considered that anyway
as you say in the folder representing a filegeodatabase users should never put other datasources... won't you agree?
I personally won't even consider this a low priority bug, and honestly not even a feature request.
