For some reason I have recently noticed that my "Save" dialog boxes do not show folders that are on the desktop. It only shows the disk drives. This may or may not have coincided with my install of Mac OS X.

Curiously it does show folders on the desktop that are associated with my Mac OS X partition, but not folders which belong to any of my other partitions.

I am also using Action Files and it has the same problem as Navigation Services (built in dialog browser).

Does anyone know what is going on? This is a serious pain in the ass because I can't access any files or folders on my desktop, unless they belong to my Mac OS X partition (which isn't what I want). Grrr. Help!
