Bug report #19703
Open MDAL data dialog does NOT show All files

In current master if I open a Mesh via the Data Source Manager by clicking on the ... button, I get an 'Open MDAL Supported Mesh Dataset(s)' dialog, with on the bottom the possibility to only show 'GRIB Files', '2DM Meshfile' or All files.
BUT even using the 'All files', I do not see all files. Only when I rename a file to something.grib I start to see it.
To test: go to: https://data.knmi.nl/datasets/harmonie_p1/0.2?q=grib
To get a current weather grib file, untar the .tgz file which will open as a long list of filenames like:
/tmp/harm36_v1_ned_surface_2018082700_048_GB (not without extension!)
But you will not be able to open those, unless you rename them to *.grib (see screenshot, where I untarred the tgz into my /tmp and only renamed 1 of the files to /tmp/harm36_v1_ned_surface_2018082700_048_GB.grib)
Also added a screenshot to show the mesh in QGIS because it is so cool :-)

Ok, I had a look into this myself, and found that the value of mFilter in qgsfilewidget.ccp
Was different for different kind of files:
For grib it was:
"All files(.*);;GRIB File(.grb .grb2 *.bin *.grib *.grib1 *.grib2);;2DM Mesh File(.2dm);;3Di Resu"
For rasters it is:
"All files ();;GDAL/OGR VSIFileHandler (.zip *.gz *.tar *.tar.gz *.tgz *.ZIP *.GZ *.TAR *.TAR.GZ *."
For csv it is:
"Text files (.txt *.csv *.dat *.wkt);;All files ( *.*)"
AND actually only the csv shows ALL files for me!
According to http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qfiledialog.html#setNameFilters using "*.*" is not portable.
They point to dot-files, but in my case the downloaded grb files without(!) any extension is also not shown.
I'll add a patch which change All files(.*) to All files().
Grepping on "All files(*" there are still a lot of other places where this is used.
