SFGetFile dialogs

Thre is a problem in the way SFGetFile dialogs are handled by MACL1.3.2 (and
maybe previous versions?). MACL remembers the last directory used, and by
default shows the same directory on the next call (manual p. 242).
The problem is that this directory may no longer exist. This is a common
case when you do a DUMPLISP and transfer the image to another machine that
has a different directory layout (or even a different volume name).
When this situation happens, even simple things like the Open menu item
cause a Lisp error.
Looks like a bug to me.
