Does somebody else have this problem, too?
I work with multiple RDP to different servers all the time. But only RDP's to Server 2008 of Windows 7 get somehow lost after some time. All other RDP connections stay opened for as long as link is up, only RDP to 2008 is lost after few hours.
RDP window is opened, but screen is blank and you cannot revive it. You have to close it and reestablish RDP to get access again.

If this is "by design" again, then what is the purpose of RDP window being opened, but blank and frozen? If it is some security issue, RDP session should either terminate, or fall to login prompt, but not just freeze.
I have a lost connection issue with Server 2003 and Windows 7.

When you say "When using my programme", I'm assuming you mean one you developed yourself? If this is the case, then perhaps this is not a Windows 7 bug, but just you software not properly reading and using the appropriate format settings provided by Windows?

For example, in Delphi, I can use the "FormatDateTime" function on dates and times. It uses the standard variations of Y, M or D when formatting ("dd/mm/yyyy"), which can lead to displays that do not match the system locale. Unless I specifically tell it to use the Shortdate ("ddddd") or Longdate ("dddddd") format strings provided by Windows, then it will not do so.

Perhaps re-checking the code of your program will solve this problem?

OK , the theme is 'Win7 bugs"". May be you guys do not know what "bug" is?
I am running Win& Ult 32 on 4 different computers and laptops for a whole year and never had the problems You had. So how You think - where is the problem? I think it is in Your machines and Your heads. Don't blame Windows for that.
Don't assume that the computer will know about Your wishes and dreams and fulfill them. It simply responds on Your clicks on the keyboard.
And remember : when all efforts to make a machine to run properly failed - read the manual

"Desktop" toolbar has 2 Control Panel icons in it, and if you delete one or both they just come back again.

Notification Area Icons for programs you have uninstalled don't get removed from the "Select which icons and notifications appear on the taskbar" window. It's debatable whether its windows or the program that is at fault, but I have yet to see any program, even a Microsoft one, remove the icon when you uninstall it.

In IE8, if you go to your list of favorites and delete the "Favorites Bar" folder, it just comes back again latter, no matter how many times you delete it.

Does it come back with the old favorites you deleted or blank?

I only have 2 pet peeves right now which I can't tell if it is purely a windows bug or something else...

1) Occasionally, the Windows Desktop fails to remember my icon placement after a restart/shutdown. Sometimes I find the icons reverted to a default placement instead of where I had them, and some other icons are still where I had them so it isn't universal, just some of them.

2) Occassional issues with shutting down where apps, mostly 32bit ones on a 64bit system, needing to 'force close'.

Well since there is no other way to bring it back if the user later decides to have favorites, it has to auto-generate.

It's just an empty folder in my "List of favorites". Deleting it doesn't delete all my favorites. Here is a screen shoot of where it shows up under my favorites tab in IE. Windows 7 Perceived Bugs & Glitches  List-favorites-bar.png
It's one of several Microsoft created folders that will be in your list of favorites when you open IE for the first time. The others like "Radio Station Guide" you can delete and they never come back. This one just won't go away. Right now it's empty, but it might have had a couple of links in it originally. I seem to remember deleting them in an attempt to get rid of this folder.
