Excel Start Menu Issue

I have MS Excel pinned to the Start Menu. There is a fly out of recently accessed files. One of them is password protected, and when I choose it, excel just starts and hangs without running the file or prompting for the password. When I remove the password, the shortcut works normally. Shortcuts directly to the file elsewhere in explorer work ok. Could it be a Startisback issue or a desktop issue? Anyone else have this behaviour. Using Windows 8.0

I'm afraid this issue has not been reported before and I can't reproduce it.
