Windows Vista no longer handles links in Start menu correctly

There was a handy, but little used feature in Windows since recently: by placing a folder into the (left top section of) the “classical” start menu, one could use hirarchic menus to quickly browse the contents. However, this feature has stopped to work a few days ago (probably after an automatic system update). Please, whoever influental reads this: make this feature working again. It outperforms all other kinds of directory browsing by far, since it avoids the overhead of useless window decorations and buttons.

Just two days later – after rebooting, installing Windows updates, and deleting and re-creating the links: they work now – and better than ever (before, sometimes double-clicking on a menu entry  of a folder did not open an explorer window, now it works reliably).
