The simplest thing I do in such cases is to pop up a dialog before
calling such functions that tells the user what is about to happen.
The user continues by hitting an OK button.  I suppose you could do
something a little more elaborate like putting up an explanatory
window that stays up when the choose-directory-dialog window comes up.

In general the problem is that some functions put up windows that do
not provide adequate customizability.
