Don't know and basically I would not mess with this kind of behaviour. If the user has access to the Explorer then they could also use Explorer to delete or rename files. The Open File dialog is just providing the same functionality.
Actually, the Windows OpenDialog (which Delphi uses) just has an Explorer window inside. It is an Explorer extention. If you don't like it you'll have to write your open OpenDialog, I guess...
