Microsoft Stealth Update and Windows XP repair don't mix

Remember that Stealth Update I talked about a couple of weeks ago? The one that Microsoft sent down the pipes to XP and Vista users and installed it irrespective of whether the user had given consent for updates to be installed? Remember too how the apologists claimed that there was nothing wrong with how Microsoft had behaved because there was no harm done? Well, it turns out that this update isn't as benign as we first thought and can indeed cause problems for Windows XP users if they try to repair their installation.
