Moneydance File Open Dialogs do not work after Monterey Update

Hi Folks:

I updated to MacOS 12.0.1. After the upgrade I can open my Moneydance Accounts file if I double click from Finder, however I cannot open the file using dialogues within Moneydance.

The "auto open last file" simple doesn't work. On the loading window I can click the file but get an error "Moneydance was unable to find the file:". If I choose to "Open Other" I the .moneydance directory is greyed out in the file selection dialogue.

I don't know enough about how Mac OS / Java / Moneydance are doing file selection these days but it looks like something goes awry with the code that managers file selection in Moneydance. It seems like there is not a permissions problem per se because double clicking on the file in Finder works.

Let me know if you'd like any more information.

    I downloaded 2022.3 (4062). It did not help at first, but after a reboot
    Moneydance is now opening files as expected.

    Thanks for your response!
