Setup Hotfix Warning After Installing VS2005 SP1

After installing VS2005 SP1, I attempted to install ReSharper 2.5 (build 236) and was presented with the warning dialog ( below).

I had previously installed the hotfix when installing v2.5 build 301, so I assumed VS 2005 SP1 includes the hotfix and that the VS service pack setup removed the original one that ReSharper setup is looking for. Taking this leap of faith, I chose the "No" option. Everything seems to be working O.K with regards to the colors.

Perhaps a fix to the ReSharper setup to look for either VS 2005 SP1 or the hotfix before presenting the warning dialog would be a good idea?

For ReSharper to function properly, you need to have the official hotfix for Visual Studio 2005 installed.
ReSharper setup program could not detect the neccessary hotfix, and is ready to perform the update.
Would you like ReSharper to install the hotfix now?
If you press "No", the ReSharper colors may not display as intended.

Hello Ed,

the installed for 2.5.1 version has already been updated to recognize that
the SP 1 is installed and not to prompt to install
the hotfix.

hotifix before presenting dialog is in order?

I haven't heard anything about VS 2005 SP 1 other than on these news groups.
Has it been released yet or is it still a beta?
