According to Microsoft recommendation one should NOT place a uninstall icon in the start menu. All uninstallation should be done from the Control Panel

"Best practice is to not place shortcuts to
remove the application in the Start menu. It is not needed because your
application?s uninstaller is in the Add or Remove Programs control panel
applet."

Sounds right. I'm also, always for not having redundant stuff anywhere. Will remove that shortcut from the installer, which then applies to fresh installations only, I'm afraid, not for update installs.

No, this is too simple for a issue report.
