Seems like Preview stores the recent files list in a plist at ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Preview.LSSharedFileList.plist

I don't yet have the Dev tools installed (half way through dling them as we speak) so I can't check out what's inside the .plist just yet.
All I know is that right arrowing into e.g. Preview, Quicktime etc. doesn't work on Lion :(

right arrowing does work for those apps on my copy of DP4, though it looks like i have to restart QS for it to pick up on documents that have been opened by an app after QS has launched. it's as if it only reads the recent files list on startup and doesn't refresh it.

Yep. Just tried relaunching QS and you're right.

It seems like the .lockfile might have something to do with it? At least
we've narrowed the problem down :)

The recent documents are stored in the same place in Snow Leopard. I'm pretty sure it's exactly the same mechanism.
The whole not refreshing the recent documents also existed on SL.
I think readying of .plist files is somehow cached.
