Caching is based on a widget (mainwindow) and not on an application name. The 
reason for that is that main windows are visually present while it is not 
transparant to the user which main windows belong to the same process (have 
the same dcop application name) Of course in the case of the file-dialog it 
is important that the application main window that shows the file-dialog is 
passed and not the file-dialog itself. But I believe you guys have sorted 
that out already, no?
