Not really. Please submit bug reports according to http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport guide. Attached screenshot lacks many useful informations and, most of all, you can't search its content.
I cc Jesus, probably he knows where to set the name for this dialog. Brennan, you can also help, search in the registry for "Microsoft Word" and try to find out which one is used in relation of this dialog (related to opening of file type .docx).
*** Bug 67577 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
It uses an SWRITER.EXE description string for this dialog for me.
This behavior is caused by the double backslash in the command line.
The string itself comes from the 'open' verb of various LibreOffice.* types in Registry.
Let me take a look at this
I tested it and works fine now with the latest master build and I suspect this will work fine also in LibreOffice 4.1.2 as I introduced some fixes for Windows 7 that accidentally fix this issue too. It should still be reproducible in LibreOffice 4.1.1 as the fixed were made after.
We can keep this issue open until it's verified, but I am confident that this is fixed now.
I can confirm this bug is present in 4.1.3.
If it is really fixed in recent code, it would be nice to know exactly in which version. Thank you.

I can confirm the double backslash still exists in 22.214.171.124
