<modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true"> causes postback links to fail in DNN 5.6.2

Some time ago, we added runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true" parameter to web.config <Modules> section of <system.webServer> so that extensionless URL's could be used (IIS7, ASP.NET 4 Integrated Mode). If I remove this parameter and just have

the DNN links work on the home page, but now all my extensionless URLs break with a 404 page not found error. How do I get BOTH extensionless URLs AND DNN postback links to work?? This is just been broken in 5.6.2 as this worked before.

Finally, problem solved.

There is a bug in IIS 7.0 and 7.5 with ASP.NET 4.0 Integrated Pipline Mode where the wild card http handler is not being correctly handled for extensionless http requests.  As a workaround, people have been using the sledge hammer approach (as we did) by specifiying <module runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true"> in the <system.webServer> section of web.config, so that the urlrewriter module could take care of the extensionless urls.

Now this used to work for a while in DNN, but something has recently changed in DNN which was causing postback link urls to be blocked when using this modules parameter. Microsoft have released a hot fix for this problem http://support.microsoft.com/kb/980368 which is also included in the Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.
