This is a known issue on NT4 with the release. I have just submitted a
patch that will fix this. If you need it urgently, you can get new
binaries from
But *BEWARE*. These binaries carry *incorrect version numbers*. If you
install them, you *must* remove them manually before you install 8.0.1,
because they will *NOT* be upgraded by the installer.

Another workaround is to back out to a previous RC which does not
contain this functionality at all.
