I don't think that this is quite what Simon intended (even if it is, I
don't think it's right!) It doesn't allow you to do the sequence he
describes above.

  Not only does it produce confusing results when one does the following:

Start the dialog (Use 'from' is checked)
Modify the path in the 'From' combo edit control
Check and uncheck the 'Use from' box.
The 'To' box now gets a completely different URL inserted, from the listbox
of the 'From' combo, not from the edit control.

But it also fails to keep the 'To' combo in sync when one edits the 'from' box

My feeling is that all the time that the 'Use From' box is checked, then
any changes to the 'From' edit control are immediately reflected in the
'To' edit control.

I would suggest that this is something that should happen in an
edit-control change handler for the 'from' control, rather than in the
event handler for the checkbox.

Cheers,

Will
