Thanks for this one. It's been three years since your posts, but the bug hasn't been fixed. I just came up against it on a Win7 system with ActivePerl 5.10.0.
GetOpenFile works fine for me, so I'll just use that. Here's the documentation on getOpenFile. It comes with Tk, no install needed.

    Hmmm, I'm getting this problem on a debian install perl. not activeperl. i'm using it to select only directories and i tried Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::ChooseDirectory and came up against hell with it too until i realized that everything else in the app is tk. tia
