Haiku is automatically adding to the "Open with..." list any applications it finds on any of my BFS drives capable of opening the given file.
I have backups of my whole Haiku system on there, as well as folders containing work I'm doing on other applications etc. This has led to a real mess of the "Open with..." context menu.
I don't think a user should be forced to hide things from Haiku on non-BFS drives (and lose attributes), or zip things etc.
Wouldn't an option to exclude drives or something be a better option? Apparently it's supposed to be a feature that these applications are automatically added based on queries etc... but hopefully there's some better way to deal with this side effect.
