Entity Framework Model Designer doesn't work in Windows 7 RC x64

User(s) can reproduce this bug
The Entity Framework Model Designer doesn't work in Windows 7 RC x64. Right-clicking anywhere in the designer always shows an error dialog saying "ERROR HRESULT ...", which is dismissable, but renders the Model Designer useless.
Generating a model from a database works fine, and entities are placed on the model surface. Editing these entities is also possible. But as soon as you right-click anywhere, the error appears.
I've tried "devenv /ResetSettings" and "devenv /ResetSkipPkgs", to no avail.
(NB: I put "Vista" in the "Operating System" selection, but the problem concerns Windows 7 RC x64.)
Visual Studio 2008 SP1
Operating System Language
Steps to Reproduce
0. Install Windows 7 RC x64

2. Install Visual Studio 2008 SP1
3. Create a new project, any type
4. Add a new Entity Model item to the project
5. In the Model designer, right-click anywhere
An error dialog appears when right-clicking on the designer surface.
A context menu should appear when right-clicking on the designer surface.

No problem. Thanks!
(Being Windows 7, I think the Snipping Tool would be a better choice for taking a screenshot.)
