Thanks Alain. As you suggested, it is an FBtoC bug specifically in  
files$ using _FSSpecFolder. It can be reproduced by running the  
following with FBtoC:

'----------------
dim as  FSSpec      spec
dim as  str255      name

name = files$( _FSSpecFolder, "Choose a folder",,spec )
print "spec.name = ";spec.name,"spec.parID =  
";spec.parID,"spec.vRefNum = ";spec.vRefNum

do
handleevents
until gFBQuit
'---------------

It is interesting the FB does not return a name in the filespec but  
the parID and vRefNum are intact.
I will log this with FBtoC. My initial perusal of the C runtime code  
didn't uncover the exact problem although I didn't see a 'case' for  
kFBFSSpecFolder after the NavDialogRun.
