// This is complicated because of a bug... see build_file_dialog_string
// NOTE ag: The original code had nwworkingdir set to path.join(initdir,
// initfile) which doesn't seem right and in fact does *not* work with the
// latest nw.js on Linux at all (dialog comes up without a path under
// which to save, "Save" doesn't work until you explicitly select one).
// Setting nwsaveas to initfile and nwworkingdir to initdir (as you'd
// expect) works for me on Linux, but it seems that specifying an absolute
// pathname for nwsaveas is necessary on Windows, and this also works on
// Linux. Cf. (which is still
// open at the time of this writing). -ag
