I use CTRL+L to switch the graphical path bar (sometimes called a breadcrumb) into a text-based location bar. I expect that hitting CTRL+L again will switch back, but it doesn't. Is this a bug? If not, how do I switch back?

(I don't want to make the change permanent.)

While in location bar, try hitting 'esc'.
