Microsoft is aware of this issue and it will be addressed in the beta program.
"Officially"? What's your source?
Given that MS has not
made the beta available yet through "proper" channels (other than the 6801 PDC build, AFAIK), then it sounds likely that anyone (outside of MS) running any other build has obtained it, uhhh, "elsewhere"...
Less than a week ago there were articles about a fake 7000 floating around...so, I wouldn't rule out the possibility that whoever created it might have altered binaries to do just this...I dunno...if I was so inclined to screw with people's heads, corrupting MP3s or other files is one thing I might
Personally, I'd wait for MS to make the beta available and compare results then before blaming the WMP team...but that may just be me.
