The task bar is so much happier now

Start > Run (WIN+R): regedit
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\Advanced"
New > DWORD (32-bit) Value
"TaskbarGroupSize"
Double-click new entry and set value to "0"

This is the secret to making all the task-bar windows in Vista (and I believe XP) group together whenever there's more than one.  I am so much happier now that all windows of the same program group into one task-bar button before the entire task bar is cluttered.

Vista has that same check box, but it does not do what this registry edit does in either XP or Vista. The normal function just collapses them after the task bar is full, not when there are only two windows open for the same program.
