Why does adding actions to the effects panel in photoshop elements 10 on windows result in the added actions showing up in the smart brush tool menu under show all?

Does not happen on photoshop elements 9 on the same computer windows 7 x64.

Installed by putting three files of each (atn, png and xml) into C:\ProgramData\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\10.0\Photo Creations\photo effects.

Deleted both the ThumbDatabase.db3 and MediaDatabase.db3 files.
(saved the old ones just in case)

Started pse 10 and waited for the database to rebuild.

example of the .xml file

I suspect it's a bug in the PSE10 Smart Brush code. (There was also a problem with the Flourescent Chalk effect in the Smart Brush for which Adobe issued a fix.)

The Elements+ addin's options also show up in the Smart Brush tool's "Show All", which is wildly inappropriate and you know that that guy knows how to write an installer.

Tim, would you be willing to share your files (atn, png, and xml) so we can test and verify on our side and find a way to fix the bug?
