[Interest] [OS X] Native QFileDialog - Set initial dir fails (again?)

I just tried the latest Qt 5.2.0 (binary distribution) and realised that
setting the intial directory for diverent flavours of save/open file
dialogs seems to be ignored (e.g. static and non-static method variants).

Setting the "Do not use Native Dialog" flag resolves the issue. An older
application linked against Qt 4.7.3 works (with the native dialog) on
the same 10.8.5 platform. Compiling and linking that same application
with Qt 5.2.0 fails again.

Observed this on OS X 10.8.5 and 10.9.0.

I created a bug issue here:


Example code attached to issue.

Merry Xmas!
