A I have stated in an earlier post:

"One thing I forgot to mention is that I removed the "Logon as another
user" function, due to the fact that reloading the shell always results
in a potential unstable system and shutdown problems.

I'd like to hear from people who used this feature and never had
problems with it. I am trying to find a solution, and it will probably
in the form of a seperate shell loader which remains resident in memory.
This loader would have to be written in pure win API (no VCL) to keep it
small. But it could solve a lot of startup and shutdown problems."

Odd. Do you have a habit of opening the C: drive from My Computer, and
then hovering over the desktop after double clicking C:? This may have
caused all those shortcuts. The beta should not do that anymore.
