Bug: WMF 5 Production Preview on Windows Server 2008R2 breaks sysprep

I just ran into the exact problem described in this ServerFault article:
http://serverfault.com/questions/749441/sysprep-fails-on-windows-2008-r2-after-wmf5-installation

After installing WMF 5 Production Preview, sysprep fails out, complaining that a registry key it is trying to delete doesn't exist.

The workaround in that link works. Adding:

REGEDIT4
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\StreamProvider] "LastFullPayloadTime"=dword:00000000

allows sysprep to complete properly.

This appears to be related to the sysprep failure caused by WMF5 on Server 2012. The changes in Generalize.xml in that bug include the registry delete command implicated in this bug.
