defaultFolder usage

You are correct, and that was what I intended to say: the 1.5 release
*should* fix the "with defaultPath" option for ask/answer file, but will not
affect the issues with setting the defaultFold prior to opening an
ask/answer file dialog box *without* setting the defaultPath. That is:

  answer file "Pick a file:" with "C:/WINNT/SYSTEM32/"

*will* work, whereas:

  set the defaultFolder to "C:/WINNT/SYSTEM32/"
  answer file "Pick a file:"

*may not* work (depending on Windows OS).

Hope that's clear,
