Application stops responding when using RadOpenFileDialog
On some (but not all!) systems (including my development laptop) an application using RadOpenFileDialog completely hangs (freezes) when e.g. selecting another directory in the RadOpenFileDialog.

I'm having the same issue on my development laptop.  My project is a VSTO add-in for Word and as long as the file I want is in the default directory, the dialog works, but any attempt at navigating locks the whole application.  This occurs when running from the IDE as well as compiled, deployed code.
