This issue will also be fixed in the next major release (8.1 is the currently planned version).
To apply the fix, download the appropriate fix (file name is labeled with the version it is meant for) to the SMP, but not in the install directory for Altiris. Log onto the SMP as the Application Credentials and execute the PFInstaller.exe. This will install the point-fix.
