The Short story: The answer is yes. Taskbar is part of your explorer.exe process, which run as standard user. If you run as admin, the tasbkar manager can't cross the mitigation boundry and therefore the messages are not sent (or recieved) by the elevated running application.
The Long story:

Hi big Al,
To answer you last question, yes. You can control the way you group different windows in to one glom or several gloms. Watch the Jump in to Windows 7 Taskbar Jump Lists for more information and examples.
And thanks for the feedback.
