I have been trying to determine whether an issue I'm having with Concurrency in Entity Framework 4.0 has been addressed in the upcoming CTP. Can someone familiar with the inner workings let me know?
I have posted the details of the issue in several locations online:

I’m sorry you have been having trouble getting the info you are looking for. There is a hotfix available that should fix the issue for you in EF4—info on how to get the hotfix can be found here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2390624
Note that this issue is not fixed in CTP5. This is because CTP5 builds on top of the core Entity Framework library shipped with .NET 4.0 to add support for Code First development and provide a new, more productive API for accessing the Entity Framework. CTP5 does not change the core library in any way. So if you install the hotfix you should be able to use it without installing CTP5. You can of course use CTP5 with the hotfix installed and get its benefits there as well.
Hope this helps.

I have this issue, but how do I get the hotfix. I've been to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2390624, but that just says contact Customer Service. When I try that, you want $100 just to send you an email!!!! Can you send me some more detailed info on getting this fix, other then just contact Customer Service!!!!

We are trying to get the mentioned hotfix, without any lucky. All support requests leads to a paid service. Could any microsoft rapresentative clarify what's the correct path to get the patch to FIX A MICROSOFT LONG STANDING bug into Entity framework?
