Wireless and PPTP

Next up on my hit list is PPTP over Cisco wireless.
I deployed about a dozen 1142 autonomous access points in the last quarter of 2012. However none of them seem to allow PPTP (Microsoft VPN) connections. I have seen other bulletin boards and blogs that suggest the latest IOS image has fixed this bug. Clearly my supplier has palmed me off with "old" (or at least, older than I would have wanted) stock and is staunchly refusing to do anything about it unless I buy some Smartnet. Having spent the best part of about 4 grand on access points I am reluctant to spend any more. Any ideas, hints, or better, workarounds to resolve this?

What version of code are you running? You may have no other choice but to get smartnet and download a new IOS.

Edit:
It looks like the issue is resolved in 12.4(21a)JY.

See here.

I'm running 12.4(23c) JA3 Release (fc1). No idea if that's newer or not.

Did you read the link I provided? It looks like you need to roll back... Which means you need smartnet for access to the file.

Roll back?
So they fix the bug in "one" version of IOS then release later versions with the bug still in place? I'm not often lost for words but in this instance...

I skimmed the link, so apologies, and thanks.

...or introduce new ones in later versions... Sometimes if you want your daily ha-has, reading through

Not to say Cisco is the only one guilty of doing this, but I hear what you're saying.
