           Summary: win16: open file dialog fails to load anything
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.27.
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-comctl32
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: xKiv at post.cz

(note: I didn't find a better place to post this bug)
Bug found while using: blades of exile (from http://www.spiderwebsoftware.com/)
(note 2: you probably won't be able to reproduce this bug easily, versions of
wine since 0.9.20 have a different bug that cause the window contents to be
corrupted, exhibits (big, screenshots):

I tested the following versions of wine (if I demangle my notes correctly):
0.9.1 - 0.9.2: I failed to build these
0.9.2 - 0.9.8: OK
0.9.9: not tested/can't even run the program
0.9.10 - 0.9.14: OK
0.9.15 - 0.9.19: not tested/...
0.9.20 - 0.9.24: bug present
0.9.25: not tested/...
0.9.26 - 0.9.27: bug present

Build environment:
gcc 4.1.1
linux 2.6.16-mm1
glibc 2.3.6

Once upon a time, in one ancient version of wine (sorry, don't remember which
anymore, it really was too many years ago), I tracked a bug that had similar
effects (namely, the win16 open dialog let me choose anything, but wouldn't let
me open it - win32 is OK) and found that after I chose a file, the choice got
overwritten by the default value.
That means: the application (say, blades of exile) used an Open file dialog with
a default of BLADES.SAV.
I chose A.SAV (and clicked OK or Open or Load ... the label does not matter).
Then BLADES.SAV was assigned to the choice string. And the application got that
instead of my chosen file.
