File associations show random items

When only looking at and setting file associations as Administrator, everything works. Not exactly easy to use, but it does what one could expect from it.
When looking at and/or setting file associations without Administrator privileges, random items are displayed in the list. These include .inl, .inlx, .inms, .inv, .inx and lots of others I never selected. I don’t even know what all of these mean.
Maybe I inadvertantly broke it by my initial effort to set file associations without Admin privileges. I went to the custom section and added the file extensions .txt, .log, .ini, .xml, .config, .conf and maybe one or two more. I can’t remember anymore what was displayed after restarting Notepad++ but the selected extensions were not associated. I then found out that I need to do it as Admin so I did it again.
This random display which is also not true (the listed file extensions are not associated with Notepad++ but other applications which they belong to, like InDesign or Visual Studio). I consider this a bug that needs to be fixed.
Notepad++ version 6.8.3 on Windows 7 x64 SP1.
