Guess I've been lucky. Having downloaded WMP 11 some time ago it's been very stable and I've had no problems. Unfortunately there is a host of others like yourself who have had various problems.
I certainly think in your case waiting for the final release is the best option.
Anyway you're welcome and thanks for letting us know.
