  Please verify the correct file name was given
[OK]

The bug was caused by the change that introduced confirmation for partial completions in the minibuffer - now the MUSTMATCH arg to read-file-name is not simply nil or non-nil, it can have other special values too, which mean confirm rather than prevent entry of non-existent files.

But none of the file dialogs were updated for these special values, so x-file-dialog is still treating any non-nil value as "require an existing file". The problem these special values try to prevent does not really apply to file dialogs, so I have checked in a change that treats them as nil when calling x-file-dialog.
