"Hmm. A notification? What shall we do with /that/? Ah! Let's ignore it shall we? Can't be all that important."
Why can't the shell just do what it's suppose to do? Wellwell. Guess that's to much to ask from the guys over at M$...

Looks good!

Another issue poped up when toying around with the new properties dialog:
When the list of properties is full, and a propery is selected, it's hard to go back to an unselected state. This has the effect that once a property is selected the possibility to add another "vanishes". I know than you can ctrl-click the property to de-select it, but I'll wager that the average user will have to close and re-open the dialog to be able to add another property.
I would suggest to add a dedicated button for "Add..." instad of sharing the function between "Edit..."/"Add...".
The obligatory nitpick: I also think that it would be nice if the window that appears when pressing the "Add..."-button would be entitled "Add Property" instead of "Edit Properties".
