Then it's a bug. :)
I just tried it with exporting a JPEG from WonderBrush. There doesn't 
seem to be a Haiku app using (or needing) a "Settings" button in the 
save dialog. (Icon-o-Matic's is always disabled.) Should I file a 
bugreport?

Yeah, I guess it's not widely needed, but sometimes you may want to 
have a "Web" or "Preview" setting and one for "Production" etc.
