 Windows 7 64bit and a crashing Citrix XenApp Client

We're starting to use Windows 7 64bit for Developer Desktops (well, three of us so far that are willing to be early adopters).

One of the things we had a problem with was logging into a Citrix remote-desktop; it would give the user a "CDViewer has stopped working". Here are the diagnostics:

It has something to do with the version of Citrix that we're using on the server vs. the latest client version. The workaround is rather simple, in Windows 7 you need to associate the ".ica" extension with C:\Program Files (x86)\Citrix\ICA Client\wfica32.exe program.
