Note: this is not strictly a bug, but undesirable behavior nonetheless.

In Windows the open/save dialog attempts to access the floppy drive. This causes the drive to make an annoying sound each time you want to open/save/export a file.

If the floppy drive is disabled in the OS to prevent this, opening the open/file dialog causes the machine to hang, requiring manual reboot.

    That's very annoying. I never noticed because none of my computers have a floppy drive.

    Unfortunately I'm using the standard Qt file dialog box and there isn't anything I can do directly about that behavior. I'll try upgrading to the most recent Qt version--hopefully that will fix the problem.
