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.
Beyond that, great job with the new release. Emacs loads almost instantaneously
on Windows now.

Find file: xxxx.txt
  File not found.
  Please verify the correct file name was given

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.
