I initially discovered this with hrev51727 but figured I'd wait for a newer release and I finally updated to hrev51791 today and the issue still persists.

See the attached screenshot for more details!

Tracker does it if you have more than one app with the same name so you can distinguish between them. In your case it's Gobe Productive.

Maybe a slightly better implementation to distinguish them to make it less noisy in the UI would be better?

I agree that the current implementation is not optimal. Maybe having a submenu for such apps with the same name would be better? Something like this:

Open With...-> BeZilla
               WebPositive -> /system/apps/WebPositive

This way top level menu won't get truncated and would stay less noisy and compact.

Sounds awesome to me if it's doable without a lot of fuss. I wonder what BeOS did in this case? I guess I could see that for myself, I have BeOS Personal running in VirtualBox by the way of ReactOS :-)
