  • .qml styles are not automatically loaded if they are present in the same folder with the same name
  • point shapefiles are not available for GDALTools interpolation
  • same for GRASS analyses (e.g. v.in.ogr)
  • in the legend they are displayed with extension (e.g. points.shp instead of points).

I believe most or all of this derives from browser adding the file extension.

Should be fixed in 3350c9c and 6999c89 - at least with shapefiles. Some files that OGR loads actually may be a collection of layers - in those cases the mentioned problems with qml, gdaltools or grass would be still there, but that is a different issue.
