Yes, you configure this via Explorer. I assume it sets a registry key
which is then used by the "open dialog" in common dialogs. We need to
use the same registry key, and then to put the cherry on top of the cake
we should provide a way for the user to change it's value (something
better than regapi xxx). That's more or less what I proposed in a
previous email (though it was about another flag).

Sorry, I thought there was a space there already. In any case it should
be there now.
