According to the developer, there are issues with sandboxed apps:

ME: > comments: Hi. Default Folder X doesn't come up in Text Edit or Preview…works darn fine in all other programs. Thanks.

DEV:>Sorry - that's a known issue (we addressed it in the FAQ and on the Default Folder X release page, but that's still not easy to find). It's due to the fact that TextEdit and Preview are "sandboxed" on Lion, which changes how the file dialogs work in very significant ways. We're working on a fix.
