Thanks Stefan, that clarifies the matter.

Based on the preceding messages in this thread, and not having a Mac build of r686 to check with, I thought native dialogs had been abandoned on all platforms in the new release.

I even thought for some time to try building on the Mac to check this, using MacPorts and following the instructions at <http://code.google.com/p/texworks/issues/detail?id=107>. But this would probably requires much more efforts than originally planned, and since you said Jonathan is intending to provide Mac builds anayway, then I gave up on the idea. So many things to try, so little time!
