serious kfiledialog bug

Lately I've noticed that when saving a file in kwrite, double-clicking a 
folder does not change directories but activates the 'ok' button, 
causing the file to be saved in whatever directory is current, using the 
name currently in the file name text box, instead.

Anyone else see this, or has it been fixed in the few days since I last 
built? This is pretty serious since it could lead to data loss (even 
with the overwrite dialog, since you're not saving in the directory you 
think you are, you might unintentionally overwrite a wrong file), and 
regardless it leads to files strewn around in unintended locations.

(It's definitely in kdelibs, also; just tested with kolourpaint and saw 
the same behavior.)
