	Great - thanks for testing this ! I'm worried though that this may only
fix one side of the problem.

works well for all of us. Ultimately, Windows needs to know which
application to activate to handle various OLE2 / GUIDs or magic names.
It can't be both, it has to be one, and it should be cleaned up on
removal (ideally). Perhaps there is a way around that, but I suspect it
requires considerable thought.

	Thanks so much for looking into this !

	All the best,
