Application sharing weirdness

    I have App. sharing turned on, and I'm running Parallels 5144 build (but I experienced this with previous builds as well). Coherence is turned off. Among other programs, MS Excel 2003 is running.

    In the Finder I click on an Excel document, which has got this tiny Parallels logo in the lower right corner of the icon. In Windows a second copy of Excel launches.

    This is not the expected behaviour. Instead, I would like to have the document opened in my running copy of Excel. (See, sometimes I have dozens of Excel documents opened at once.)

    My workaround is to drag and drop files from the Finder. But this is just so not it.
