after installing VS2012 Update 1, VS generates incorrect code in the InitializeComponent method for xaml page. It creates page Uri using page namespace instead of assembly name. That causes runtime XamlParseException at attempt to load such page.
It worked before Update 1 installation and it breaks our already published samples.
We can try to workaround this issue by renaming namespaces in all samples. But customers, who already downloaded our samples, will still have this issue after installing Update 1 for VS 2012.
We consider that as a showstopper issue.
Please, fix it ASAP.

The error occurs when the assembly name differs from the default namespace in the project properties. The code that VS generates for InitializeComponent() uses the project default namespace where it should use the project assembly name.

The workaround is to make the assembly name and the default namespace identical in the project properties.
Works fine regardless of whether or not this contains a dot.
