I am going to print a response I just got from Microsoft Connect here, and let you do the judgement yourself:
Very sorry for not getting back to you on your last comment till now. Unfortauntely the Connect system just tracks fixes for our next product releases. To get fixes for shipped products you'll need to contact Microsoft Support at http://support.microsoft.com/oas/default.aspx?ln=en-us&prid=9511&gprid=344272.
This probably explains this better.
