Its done that ever since the beta of Windows 7, I'm not so sure its a bug.

EDIT: One of the taskbar WLM objects is your account you are logged into, the other one is just your contact list.

Thanks nova.. That's why I didn see it. /palmface.

However, if you run it in Vista compatibility mode it will show up as one icon and minimize to your windows notification area.

Am I the only one surprised that, that is not the default setting?
