I asked a question on stackoverflow that doesn't really have a valid answer. The comments and answer provided detail some possibilities and other issues surrounding the question, but don't give a specific answer. I expect the actual answer to my question is simply "No, there is no workaround", but without that answer and a specific reason why not, I am hesitant to mark an answer as there is currently no real solution to the issue. I realise I could start a bounty on the question, however, it seems as though given there is a Microsoft connect issue open on it, that it is unlikely to get a satisfactory answer.
Should I close the question? If so, I risk losing any comments etc that have arisen through peoples knowledge and research.
Should I simply leave it open and hope that at some point in the future, someone updates it if/when future versions of SQL Server make it a non issue and resolve it?
