I can't find a reference to the change in any of the change docs I 
looked at, but sure enough, it's changed somewhere along the way. I'm 
sort of surprised I hadn't noticed till now, but I usually don't depend 
on the (default) defaultfolder in my standalones. Generally I set it 
myself if I need it.
