Clicking on Silverlight Popup paralysing the map_click functionality


I am new to VIEWS. Here is something that I observed the behavior of the existing VIEWS application.
When the popup is displayed, clicking on the popup works fine. but when we come back to map and try to click someother pushpin to see the popup,
It shows the error "unknown exception" at silverlightPopup.content.popup.ShowPopup(this); of popup.js file.

Here are the repro steps for the same:
  1. Load the map. Add the pins using Find method, let's say United States and Australia.
  2. Click on the pin 'United States', popup is displayed.
  3. Click on the popup(any click right or left will work).
  4. Back again on the map, click on pin 'Australia' or 'United States'.
Expected Result:
Display the Popup

Actual Result:
'Unknown Exception' is displayed.

This bug is actually a Silverlight bug. What is happening is that Silverlight unloads the silverlight instance if you click on the popup to dismiss it. If you simply mouse off the popup, it works fine. I don't know exactly why this happens, but fell free to bug the Silverlight team about it, as I have verified that it is their bug/design. I was hoping it would be fixed in Beta 2, but apparently not.
