I'm trying to open the inbox.taskpaper file in the TaskPaper app by doing "inbox.taskpaper" "Open with..." "TaskPaper", but it doesn't list TaskPaper as one of the apps if I try to do completion.

If I press the left arrow to navigate back to Applications, and then the right arrow to move back into the directory, I can then select TaskPaper.

This is B71 (3942). I wasn't seeing this behavior before the upgrade.

The Open With... action uses the system's default for opening the
application. If you cannot see it in the list, then are you sure OS X knows
to use TaskPaper to open the file? Right click the file and open the 'Open
With' menu. Is TaskPaper there?

If not, try either making TaskPaper the default app for .taskpaper files or
reloading launch services. Run this in Terminal:
On 10.8 Mountain
Lion:/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister
-kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user

Well, as of B71, it should list all applications in the catalog, with the default app (according to the OS) listed first.

But something's up. If I recall, the code removes the default app from the list and re-inserts it at the top. I think the last step is failing. The third pane is always blank for Open With… and the default app for the selected file is nowhere to be found.

It looks like instead of the default application, it's inserting a single-element array containing the default application.
