Fresh Flex Builder Install does not like flash remoting projects

I recently slicked the development environment on one of my laptops and reinstalled everything; ColdFusion, Flex Builder, Eclipse etc.

While testing, I found I could create and run basic projects but creating a Flash Remoting project does not work.
Even if the new application contained simply an mx:application tag and a mx:panel tag, it would throw two runtime errors:

Error #1
view plain print about
1VerifyError: Error #1053: Illegal override of subtopic in mx.messaging.Consumer.
2at flash.display::MovieClip/nextFrame()
3at mx.managers::SystemManager/::deferredNextFrame()
4at mx.managers::SystemManager/::preloader_initProgressHandler()
5at flash.events::EventDispatcher/flash.events:EventDispatcher::dispatchEventFunction()
6at flash.events::EventDispatcher/dispatchEvent()
7at mx.preloaders::Preloader/::timerHandler()
8at flash.utils::Timer/flash.utils:Timer::_timerDispatch()
9at flash.utils::Timer/flash.utils:Timer::tick()

Error #2
view plain print about
1TypeError: Error #1009: Cannot access a property or method of a null object reference.
2at mx.managers::SystemManager/::docFrameHandler()

Tom and João pointed me to a hotfix for FlexBuilder at http://www.adobe.com/go/kb402000. After installation of the hotfix, the errors went away. I should have looked for a hotfix, but since I downloaded a fresh binary, I thought I was above the law! No one is above the law, are they?
