In BD 1.2.7 (v415), I have consistently observed the following behavior.
I have my preferences set to open a file dialog box when I start BD.
If I start BD and wait for it to start before doing anything else, a
single such file dialog box comes up, and goes away when I select a
However, if, in my impatient rush to get on with things, I start BD
and then start working on something else, an extra dialog box comes
up, in the following manner. When BD is ready, its icon bounces up
and down in the dock; I click on its icon; and now there are two file
opening dialog boxes that come up. I can use them both if I want, or
else use one and dismiss the other with "cancel.
Clearly not a life-threatening problem, but I don't think that this
is how this is supposed to work.
