You can argue if you like, but I won't do anything about this. Seriously.

It's obviously a bug in Win2k on context menus shown for the folder
background (in all other OS and menus it works). That means whatever we
try, we would never know for sure that we really worked correctly around
that bug.
Yes, the menu icons are different. But there's no way for the context
menu handler to know for whether it was started for the folder
background or the folder itself, at least now without implementing a
*separate* context menu handler specific for folder backgrounds.

And concerning the annoying BUG!!! reports: I've set up a mail filter to
move all mails which have more than one exclamation point directly to
the trash folder. I simply don't have the energy anymore to deal with
such people.
