Windows 7 Start Orb Bug

Hi, noticed a bug with start orb. Thought maybe you guys could help do something about it.

I noticed this bug since Windows 7 was released, allways thought this was an isolated problem on my pc, but today I found this video on YT so I guess I'm not the only one with this problem.

Win7 Ultimate x64 SP1 / WCP x64 / Ubuntu 11 x64

This is likely to apply to all users. I wouldn't name it a bug. The focus goes to the context menu and the orb is left unnotified. Does this happen with Vista too?

Windows 10 Pro (x64)

Its not a bug. It is just that the button still has focus. And has not receive "MOUSEOUT" event.

I'm not using the same method from the video....I use the start button a lot(I have pinned items to start menu), and sometimes the orb remains highlighted and is really annoying.
