  1. Hey Patrick,

    This was just a teaser. I am not sure whether you intentionally omitted the part where I am saying that we will fix it in CLR 4.0 or just decided to not mention it in the absence of any details. I know I am not saying how we will fix it yet – but this is all part of the teaser 🙂 For those who do not attend PDC I will post more details about the fix after the PDC.
