Programs using setConfirmOverwrite(true) (e.g. LibreOffice with KDE4 integration, Mozilla products with KDE4 integration, several components of the PIM suite) will trigger the following strange behaviour:
If the file name is empty and the user selects "Save", the dialog will ask if you want to overwrite the current directory instead of just ignoring the empty input.

By moving the query below the directory checks the order is correct again, showing the overwrite confirmation dialog only if the field contains a unique filename.

Looking at the code this also affects Frameworks 5, though I haven't tested it yet.
