Windows 7: Java apps confusing taskbar

Java apps confusing taskbar

I have a SAN administration tool I use that launches a Java app. The desktop shortcut that runs it looks like this:

C:\Windows\System32\javaws.exe "C:\Users\gm.KTC\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\14\391de28e-4bf1d62f"

When I pin this shortcut to the taskbar and launch it, I get a second instance of the icon in the taskbar (shown as running), and the pinned icon never changes to a "running" icon. If I launch another instance of the app (Shift-Click the non-running pinned icon) it will pair up both running instances and show me both when I hover over the running icon, so that part works, but it appears that the mechanism that links a running app to the taskbar gets confused by the shortcut.

Bug, feature, something worth reporting?

I want to bump this...

I'm running multiple java applications - each is grouping itself properly - except not under the pinned icon, but under a new one. This is very annoying!

Where could one post a bug report?!

Is there a program that can tell me if any of my apps need java?
Honestly? I'm sick of dealing with it. I uninstalled Blackberry Desktop Manager (I don't even use it anymore because updating my phone is a pain), but I'm wondering how to tell if anything else needs java. Is there a program that will scan my computer and tell me what programs need Java? thanks.

Any way to detect Java apps/dependencies?
Howdy, Before I remove Java completely for security reasons, I would like to find out if anything needs it. Is there a way to detect Java applications/dependencies besides removing Java completely? Removing it isn't practical because I am unable (unwilling) to test every application on multiple...
