Can't drag and drop more than ten files from OS file manager to Aseprite in Linux

Aseprite v1.2.40-x64
Linux Mint 21.2 Cinnamon 64-bit

This was reported earlier in late 2019 and early 2023 on different distributions here:

It may have to do with file and path handling differences between Windows and Unix-like OS’s. Maybe an enumeration issue where 0-9 works but 10 fails due to unexpected formatting/parsing of double-digit indices…hell if I know.

In any case, there is no Ctrl-A to select all files or holding Shift to select a range of files in the Aseprite file dialog, meaning the only way to reasonably open a large number of files is a drag and drop operation, which of course is limited to ten files.

I have updated Aseprite via Steam to v1.3.5-x64 and the issue still occurs.
