Dynamic menus and miscounted references

Hello everyone,

I know I promised weekly reports but it’s summer time and, although I haven’t really been out on vacation, I have been taking my schedule a lot more loosely than usual.

After fixing the stobject compilation, I set my sights on the file browser menus. I began by trying to figure out how the Windows shell manages the menus, and I realized that most of the actual work was done in the WM_INITMENUPOPUP message handler.
