Earlier today, in commit 1582f160, I did a change that seemed to break
openning files in OSX.  (Files are all grayed out and unclickable.)
After *much* fighting I managed to commandeer a monitor-less machine
via VNC, so I can now try to actually run the OSX version -- but ... I
don't see the problem.  I have some vague guess about a fix, and a
much vaguer guess about seeing the problem in some setups but not in
others.  I like to fix this asap (which is sad, given the ~6 hours I
spend on the VNC battles, and the fact that ultimately I'm back to
debugging-via-other-people...), so I'm looking for someone who does
see the problem.

The problem, assuming that you'll see it, should make all files

Thanks.  (And let's continue off-list.)
