Quicktime 7.2 packaging

One of the benefits of frequent Quicktime patching, is that each time I do it becomes easier. The last couple of times, I think I copied the MSI, tested and I was done.
With 7.2, I ran into a bit of a snag. It seems that the first time each user uses the shortcut in the start menu, Quicktime does a brief mini-install. I’m not sure if this is by design or if I’ve done something to set it off. The result of that mini-install is the desktop and quick launch icons are recreated. I see a post from over at appdeploy commenting about this issue as well.
The only way to avoid this that I’ve found is to delete the start menu items for Quicktime and recreate new shortcuts without the MSI baggage.
