Anyone else frustrated by the "Reopen" menu?

On a day to day basis, I work on two primary applications. I have several branches of each of those applications on my drive at once. I use IDEA's "Reopen" menu item under "File" A LOT. I wouldn't be surprised if this were a pretty typical situation for a lot of develoepers. Somewhere along the line, version 9 maybe, this menu change a bit and its simple, intuitive usability dropped. Sometimes the item in the menu is listed as "xxx" and at other times that exact same item is listed by it's directoy location (i.e. d:\abc\def\sdf\). I realize it's a very minor thing, but when I want to open an item from that menu, I don't think it's out of line to expect to be looking for the same thing there every time.

I know that any Jetbrains employee has more usability knowledge in his little finger than I have in my entire body, but this just seems... off.
