yes, sorry - i missed that you were now referring to the FileName label.

however, it appears that this may actually be a documentation bug.

QFileDialog has an internal property "fileNameLabelExplicitlySat" [sic] 
which is set to true when using setLabelText.

the setFileMode method checks this property when deciding whether to 
reset the FileName label. there is no corresponding property for any of 
the other labels.
