Edit with WordPad

Bizarrely, my CityDesk context menu for editing templates is now showing a menu item for "Edit with @shell32.dll,-22069", which is a reference to a resource string.

I've tracked this down in the Windows registry to WordPad. Could some kind soul using Windows XP please let me know what value they have for "FriendlyAppName" under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\wordpad.exe please?
