SQL Server performance problem

This is a link to a SQL Server sp4 problem and a suggested soltion.

SQL Server sp3 had a bug in which indexes with non-integer numeric values could miss values in a select – especially when comparing differing precision.

The solution that they implemented can result in table scans – causing a huge performance penalty in areas that were unaffected by the problem. I known that missing data is bad – but forcing table scans is a rather severe penalty.
