When I installed 3.3.4rc1, it unpinned all the icons from my Win 7 taskbar. Since I have about 15, is took several minutes to recreate by setup. Unless this is a unique glitch, this should be a release blocker until fixed.

This happened after the install paused because 3.3.3 was running. After I closed that, it paused for an 'application' it called '3330'. I have seen this 'name' before, but I have no idea what it refers to. With task manager, I deleted one conhost process (there were about 10, and 10 of some other process), then thought better of continuing along that line, and clicked [Retry]. All icons for closed programs immediately disappeared. When I rebooted to see if the deletion was permanent, the rest were gone.

3.3.4 installed without incident. So closing as presumed 'unique glitch'.
