Unfortunately, Windows 7 64 bit (as seen with Windows 7 Ultimate) already
preinstalls the following 3 Handlers:

   Offline Files

for 64 bit processes.

This is biting us (a bit) on the TortoiseHg shell extension, where we
"abused" the unversioned handler (question mark icon) to signal "no state
info available" on tracked folders (happens in error cases and transiently
while our state info cache file is updated).

The 3 preinstalled handlers are causing the TortoiseHg unversioned handler
not to get initialized and thus stay defunct
(3 handlers from Windows + 9 TortoiseOverlay shim -> 12 handlers -- which
is one in excess of the 11 possible).

(Note that TortoiseHg also uses the TortoiseOverlay component, as
provided by the TortoiseSVN project -- thanks a lot!)

Interestingly, for 32 processes [1], Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate does not
install an "Offline Files" handler.

(Of course, on Windows 7 64 bit, explorer.exe is a 64 bit process).
