If you're using PowerPoint 2003, installed the PowerPoint 2003 April 2011 Public Update, and experienced the background images issue identified in the Support article relating to our PowerPoint 2003 April 2011 Public Update, the Microsoft Office Sustained Engineering Team now has a fix for you.
For more information about the fix, go to http://blogs.technet.com/b/office_sustained_engineering/archive/2011/04/23/issues-after-installing-powerpoint-2003-update-kb2464588.aspx.
We wanted to let you know about this issue, but we're just the messenger. So if you have any questions, please leave them in the Comments section on the site above rather than here, so that you can get the quickest answer from the Sustained Engineering folks.
Also, check out this blog post on the Office
Deployment Support Team Blog: How to programmatically install the PowerPoint
2003 hotfix related to KB2543241 and KB2464588.
And we apologize if this issue affected you.

Whilst this is good to know, this comes a good 10-12 days after the issue starting making a lot of noise.
The natural reaction was to look here; who even knew what the "Office of Sustained Engineering" blog was?! It would be good to post about the bad news as well as the good.
Otherwise it feels very much like the PowerPoint product team is disconnected from its users.
@Scytale, thanks for your constructive feedback. And thanks for your history of reading and commenting on the blog, we appreciate it.
