CFileDialog returning invalid file name after file selections from the root

For some reason file selection goes great until I select files from the root.  The first time I select files from the root everything works as expected.  The next time I open the CFileDialog the box and DoModal for the class returns FNERR_INVALIDFILENAME.
This is the constructor:
m_pFileDialog=new CFileDialog( TRUE, NULL, NULL, OFN_HIDEREADONLY|OFN_OVERWRITEPROMPT|OFN_ALLOWMULTISELECT|OFN_EXPLORER|OFN_FILEMUSTEXIST|OFN_PATHMUSTEXIST, "All Files (*.*)|*.*||");

m_pFileDialog->m_ofn.lpstrTitle="Select Files for SoftPack";

At present this is the only action taken in response to a button click.

void CSoftwareDispatcherDlg::OnBnSoftpackAddfiles()
{
  POSITION pos;
  CString sPathFileName;
  int iret;
  DWORD dwDlgExtError;

  iret=m_pFileDialog->DoModal();
  //see cderr.h for meaning of extended errors returned by   CommDlgExtendedError();
  if(iret==IDCANCEL)
    dwDlgExtError=CommDlgExtendedError();
  pos=m_pFileDialog->GetStartPosition();
  while(pos)
  {
    sPathFileName=m_pFileDialog->GetNextPathName(pos);
    m_lbSoftPackFiles.AddString(sPathFileName);
  }
}

I can't get it to fail - seems to work fine. BTW, DoModal can only return IDOK or IDCANCEL... you must be calling GetOpenFileName() or GetSaveFileName() to get FNERR_INVALIDFILENAME returned...

CommDlgExtendedError()  will give you the same thing.  Use it after the doModal returns IDCANCEL.
If you want Kap I will send you the source code.  You will need to comment out the Database stuff.  It uses ODBC communication level.  But the file stuff should work the same.  I have made some changes thought.  Originally the CFileDialog point was "newed" in the CDialog class constructor and deleted in destructor.
