Thanks.

There's no need to duplicate the code in both branches of "if (STRINGP
(default_filename))"; "Current Directory" is shorter than MAX_PATH, so
there are no worries about buffer overflow. You can just add

  /* The code in file_dialog_callback that attempts to set the text
     of the file name edit window when handling the CDN_INITDONE
     WM_NOTIFY message does not work.  Setting filename to "Current
     Directory" in the only_dir_p case here does work however.  */
  if (filename[0] == 0 && ! NILP (only_dir_p))
    strcpy (filename, "Current Directory");

afterwards.

Having to go fishing for the window handles is hackish, but not your
fault, but Microsoft's. Unless someone knows of a better way, that's
what we're stuck with.

I don't see anything wrong with this.

Here's your patch, slighty reworked to be more on line with current
Emacs coding conventions (the "0 == X" and "NULL == X" styles are not
frequently used) and with a proposed ChangeLog entry (feel free to
rewrite it, of course).

        * w32fns.c (FILE_NAME_COMBO_BOX, FILE_NAME_LIST): Define.
        (file_dialog_callback): Fix locating the window handle of the File Name
        text field.  After disabling it, set focus on the list control.
        (Fx_file_dialog): If only_dir_p is non-nil, set the text of the File
        Name text field to "Current Directory" if it does not already have
        another value.  (Bug#8181)
