File Open Dialog - Vista File Type Amnesia

On my XP32 system when I use the File Open dialog I can select the type of file to use as a filter (e.g. sldprt, slddrw, sldasm).

On subsequent File Open cycles (during the same session) the filter remains in place until I select a different one. I find this very convenient and desirable.

On my Vista64 sytem the filter resets to the "SolidWorks File Suite" wildcard every time. I find this very inconvenient and undesirable.

Am I missing an option to have the File Open dialog remember or is this just one of those Vista improvements?
