This is a known problem with the GTK+ version wxWidgets 2.8.  It's been
this way since I got started with the project.  I'm not sure it's been
fixed in 2.9.  The solution is to create a wxFileName object using the
path returned from the file dialog and check if it has a file extension.
 If it doesn't, set the file extension to the appropriate value.
