I'm trying to convert an application from PyQt4 to Qt and have found what appears to be a difference in the return results from QFileDialog.getOpenFileName

I'm calling QFileDialog with the following call:

filepath = unicode(QFileDialog.getOpenFileName(self,
"Species Explorer - Open Species", dir,
"Species Files (*.species)"))

When I use PyQt4 I just get a string with the file selected using the dialog box. For example:


When I use PySide I get a string that contains a tuple with two sub-strings: the filename and the value of the filter. For instance:

(u'C:/production/species/testSpecies.species', u'Species Files (*.species)')

Is this the expected behaviour?

I'm using PySide for Windows, pyside-0.4.0-py2.6
