It only asks that if the file you specify doesn't exist yet (then it opens 
the template dialog so that you can choose the template which should be used 
for that new file). Else the file is opened. Could it be that somehow the 
path of the file got wrong or so - at least looks for me like you specified a 
non-existing file.

Yes, specifying an existing file :-))
