It looks like I misunderstood what "selectedFilter" meant. I had assumed it 
only meant "the filter that the user selected" when it also means "the filter 
initially selected" and the QString is modified in situ.

Go back to using the normal static functions - they work as they always have 
done - and I will remove the extra "Filter" variants.
