I don't know of any such application.
It's just an old bug and one of very few bugs marked as tasklets.
And it seemed very easy to fix, so i tried fixing it.
Plus it's different from the way windows XP does it.

If you think it should stay the way it is now, maybe it should be
resolved with WONTFIX?
