Any pre-sp2-xp users install MS05-019?

Has anyone here installed MS05-019 on a pre-SP2 XP system? Since the
Nmap code explicitly checks for SP2 in deciding whether to perform the
blocked-raw-sockets workaround, Nmap will probably cease to function
if MS05-019 is installed on an SP0/SP1 system. Can anyone verify
this? And if Nmap does cease working, will it work if you add the
--win_norawsock option? I'm trying to determine whether a new Nmap
patch is necessary.
By the way, ZDNet just published an article on this issue:
"Microsoft plays tag on raw sockets"
