I opened Emacs 23.1 in MS Windows to write some Lisp code. When I used C-x C-f to create a new file, it brought up the window to pick a directory and create
the file. However, when I typed in a file name, in this case Pi.lisp, and
clicked ok, a popup appears that says C:\Lisp\Pi.lisp File not found. It also does this
when I click the "New File" button at the top of the screen.
The ability to create a file without having to leave the editor would be nice.

This was reported by Drew yesterday, with unfortunate timing just after 23.1 was released. The actual bug seems to have been there since April and should affect all platforms that use file dialogs that enforce the MUSTMATCH arg.

I suggest that as a workaround you remove the customization you've made that causes Emacs to use the file dialog even when you use C-x C-f.
