Simple one this - file dialogs on the Mac are being opened at their default size 
- i.e. really small and pokey

With modern Navigation Services dialogs, you can set the size before you open 
them.

Please make it a little larger...
The user can resize the dialogs and the dialog remember their size and location
accross sessions. I'm inclined to resolve this as invalid.

It remembers? Goes and tries it. Yup. Works fine.

Obviously hadn't tried that on a new enough build, or maybe I reported this just 
after I nuked my profile...

Invalid sounds good to me.
Yes the user can change it, but that still leaves the same question as you should 
ask for anything the user can change: is the *default* setting the setting which 
the user is *least likely* to want to change in the first place?

The default setting is the same as just about every other Mac application.  
That doesn't mean it's necessarily *right,* but it works, its tested, and 
since any size change is remembered, it shouldn't cause any significant 
problems.

Resolving as WONTFIX.
