I can confirm this, I have been testing this extensively, worse news is un-installing theses patches leaves ODMA Broken. Un-install of Office and re-install of Office still leaves it broken.
TIP for upgrading to Office 2007 from Office 2003, remove the Docx compatibility packs first. MS Office upgrade leaves them installed, and this also breaks the ODMA. Un-installing the Compatibility packs post upgrade, in some cases breaks Office 2007 file associations open/edit functions.
After several days of mucking around we have managed to solve this issue. Turns out that if you also remove patch KB982135 the problem will go away. This one is a much older patch but also requieres removal with the other one's previously mentioned (particularly patch KB2251419).
