    Thanks, Jürgen.  I think this issue is serious in that:  It drew my
attention not from the inside of the start menu, but from the recent
applications shortcuts of the start menu.  See the attached picture.
Windows 7 puts the first shortcut of the most recent installed
application, at the recent application shortcuts of the start menu.  It
is very large and obvious when user wants to run anything in Windows 7.

    A detaled explanation of my case: I first upgraded from 3.4.0 to
3.4.1, and found this problem (alone with Draw).  Then I removed the
previous version and did a clean install, and this problem still exists
(alone with Draw).

    I layed the icons a bit.  It seems that the Base shortcut only have
problem when the icon is read from sbase.exe.  The shortcut icon of
Base.lnk is fine if it is from scalc.exe, sdraw.exe or anything else.
The same goes for Draw.lnk:  It only has problem when points to
sdraw.exe, but not the others (sbase.exe, smath.exe, etc.)  Any other
shortcuts (even those created by hand) work fine for both sbase.exe and

    So I suppose the problem lies in the shortcut files Base.lnk and
Draw.lnk.  How do we create these two files?  Shall we create them again?
