BIP Deskotop (32-bit) with Office 2010 (32-bit) on Win 7 64-bit

BIP Deskotop (32-bit)
Office 2010 (32-bit)
Win 7 (64-bit)
The current certification matrix seems to say this is supported, however I am having the following problem:
1. I have an existing RTF template, with data template that works. I have run it to be sure, and can view output and verify.
2. If Iopen that RTF template in BIP Desktop, then remove a field, and then using the field browser ( or insert > field ) add that same field back, or a new one the report will not generate output.
Upload the RTF, and the process will finish with status warning, and it fails during post processing. I look at the Output Post Processor error. edit the RTF template with a text editor and see that instead of putting in a <?YOUR_FIELDNAME?> BIP Desktop has instead inserting something similar to the following: <?ref:xdo0001?>. The only solution I currently have is to manually change these tags, however for large BIP reports this is cumbersome, and unacceptable for a long term solution.
Is there a workaround? or reported bug? I couldn't find anything on MOS for this.
Here's the OPP log, you can see the error points to the "REF" element that was added by BIP:Desktop.
