it has a strange behavior at the open file dialog, when i open C:\cache where i have hundreds of media files, it first reads the folder and shows them but than they disappear in the view and only 1 folder called Lib is shown which is not in C:\cache when i click on Lib it opens C:\Python24\Lib maybe there is a relation? dont know because lack of know how.

because i had the impression it was not welcome to report problems with the nightly builds as there are so many problems.
