    Hello, people! :)

    There's this strange bug I'm encountering with my Windows 7 install. It happens when you're using the Flock Web Browser (it's based off of Firefox, so Firefox might do the same thing; I haven't tried it yet) and you minimize the downloads window. Messenger just pops up as if I clicked the icon on the taskbar. This happens every time, unless I've killed the Messenger process or Messenger just simply isn't running at the time. Anyone know what might be causing this?

    There's definitely a bug in how messenger performs with the new task bar. The solution is to run it in Vista compatibility mode which forces it to run in the tray where it belongs. No more volunteered widow opening as well. This one drove me nuts, too.
