Default Two icons in Windows 7 Taskbar!

This is not exactly a bug, but it's more a suggestion.
The thing is that if I "anchor" JDownloader on Windows 7 taskbar and I click on it, it launches another icon (the application running) and the first icon (the anchored) goes off. It's something like that:

It isn't really a problem, but it is a little annoying.
Besides, if you make a "right click" on the running application icon (on taskbar, not on traybar), the only option is "close window".

Well, that's all.
By the way, good job!!

a little bit tricky but possible.

you have to create a shortcut to jdownloader.jar
then rightclick properties and replace command with

"C:\program files\java\bin\javaw.exe" -Xmx512m -jar JDownloader.jar

the path can differ from system to system

then click apply and also change icon of shortcut to jd logo by taking icon from jdownloader.exe

starting jd with this shortcut will place one icon at taskbar
