Ok ... I'm not sure what does that mean now for me?

Shouldn't the command be labeled "Edit" and "Edit with" then?

I checked (on my German WXP Pro system), right-click on a .php file
highlights "Bearbeiten" and it seems to be the so-called default action
because it's in bold.

However the "Öffnen" (open) command opens the file in Notepad. Exactly
what I get in the RepoBrowsers. When I choose "Öffnen mit" (open with)
and select gVim for default, the next time choosen "Öffnen" (open) it's
still Notepad again.

Seems confusing to me all in all; I'm not sure now: can this be fixed
and how can I fix it?

Thanks for your help, Stefan!

with kind regards,
- Markus
