FS#4994 - BUGFIX: remove inappropriate "open with"

The patch removes an inappropriate “open with” option from the context menu when in WPS or DB view. The option only makes sense for a file in the file tree.

This doesn't seem to be a problem any more with current SVN.

Why is that option inappropriate? It is used to (for example) open a currently playing/selected mp3 file in the splitedit or vbrfix plugin, or the currently playing/selected WAV file with either the MP3 or WavPack encoder.

Well, the reason I spotted the issue was that if you long-click on genre/artist etc in the tag DB view, you get the lonely option 'open with' which leads to an error regardless of what you select and definitly should not be there. I still consider open_with an action to be performed on a file while browsing and not "while playing". With the same reasoning you could have delete and rename in the WPS context menu (which I would find much more useful). With the addition of eq & pitch the context menu becomes rather cluttered.

BTW: the behaviour was introduced with
