WGA false positives

There's nothing official, as yet, but the rumour-mill has it that Microsoft's beta WGA software, pushed out as a critical update, is finding a lot of false positives:

And you really, really don't want to inform a client like Proctor and Gamble that it is pirating code; and, my sources insist, that's exactly what the beta code has been doing.
When the rumour started spreading, users got together to share outrage. It quickly became apparent that some of them weren't at P&G and instead of having corporate rank, were quoting military rank. Yes; the USAF has also been tagged, say my sources, as a corporate pirate.
