    Default "Open File" dialog shows no files on first launch

    Repro steps:
    1. Launch Beyond Compare
    2. Under "Start a new Session" click "Text Compare"
    3. In the left file pane, click the "Open File" folder icon next to the file path bar

    A file picker dialog is displayed so that the user can select the file they wish to open from a list.

    A file picker dialog is displayed but no files are shown in that window. The user may navigate to other directories, but no files are shown for any of them.

    Closing this dialog and re-opening will populate the file list appropriately and allow the user to select the file they want.

    Thanks for the report. This is probably related to the Preview issue you've also found. I'll add to our notes.

    Default I also encounter this.

    I also find that browsing into a directory and using the back and forward buttons would show me all the files without having to close and reopen the dialog.
