That's the whole discussion about: shall we deactivate the menu if
it's a plain "add" or not. I think we should activate it anyway -
TortoiseMerge can handle even that ;)

I was planning on changing the Mutex in the shell extension with a
critical section and guard the whole function not just the cache (as
you mentioned in a PM earlier, the way it's done now can cause
crashes). So I'll be changing the shell extension files anyway so I'll
have a look at the changes in the context menu too - otherwise we
might end up with ugly conflicts.
