comment PCI Express device does not initialize properly after extended log off
@Tog: Thanks for the comment. Just to be clear, this is a video capture board which formats frames sent by a line scan camera. Regardless, I don't have access to the internals of the card. We've noticed that this issue is specific to this customer's environment (> 1000 customers and we've never seen this before). As we aren't getting much help from the manufacturer I'm just throwing out a rope hoping that someone has encountered something similar which was caused by an OS setting.

comment Difference in tab completion and order in Windows Explorer and the Open/Save file dialog
@deathApril: Because sometimes there is a reason for doing things differently, I was just curious if anyone had some insight. I know some MS devs are present on SO, but obviously this question doesn't fit there.

Yeah, I went there first. He is almost through them, I'm just waiting for it to open up.

comment Difference in tab completion and order in Windows Explorer and the Open/Save file dialog
So, I do appreciate the time you spent in putting this together, but as you know, it does not answer my question. I understand the Windows message queue and that the tab order is different. I understand exactly how a Windows UI works under the covers. My question is why was this decision made (or overlooked), which will only be answerable by someone with insight into the way things work at MS (Raymond Chen, looking at you again, I know you're on SO...). Thanks for the response though, just hoping someone around here has some insight into the decision making process.

@OliverSalzburg: That's the sort of response I would expect from an engineer who knows little about how to build a system that solves problems for users. I'm an engineer too, but I don't care that the OpenfileDialog and Explorer share two different implementations. They perform similar tasks and are part of the same OS, so I expect the behave consistently. A response such as yours tells me only that the left hand doesn't know what the right is doing, but I assume you don't actually have any real insight on this (do you work for Microsoft?).

comment What's up with tab order on my Mac?
Yes, I am a Windows developer and I set tab order all... the... time. It is extra work, but there are situations where the OS is going to get it wrong. Don't like the approach, but meh, it is working for me now.

Thanks, but I prefer the Windows approach on this one. Also, I prefer FireFox to Safari.

Yeesh, I had a feeling, but I found it hard to believe that this would actually be an OS level setting. WTF... thank you :)

comment Why does Windows Vista's Notepad randomly move the cursor after saving a file?
I have had... issues with Notepad++ crashing and/or hanging on file open on multiple systems quite often. Other than that, a great editor ;)
