passing "" as fname is the same as passing NULL (the last returned file is used).

This happens even if the pattern is changed.

Fixed in Subversion repository.

fl_file_chooser behavior changed slightly, but seems more conform to the documentation, so I guess this is a Good Thing:

Setting the filename to NULL will reuse the previous filename, unless the pattern changed, in which case it will set the filename to "" but keep the directory (the second issue did not work as expected).

If the user supplies an empty filename "", the path will be reused, but no filename is set. It used to do the same as a NULL pointer, but I think that that is not intended.
