Visual Studio 2014 CTP Crashes on Get Latest when using a touch screen

So, just a quick one. I downloaded Visual Studio 2014 CTP and tried to get some code from source control. Unfortunately, Visual Studio crashes without warning. A quick look in the event viewer shows that it's a touch related issue (null reference exception). I installed VS on my Surface Pro, and when using the touch pad it seems to work fine.

Application: devenv.exe
Framework Version: v4.0.30319
Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.

Exception Info: System.NullReferenceException
   at System.Windows.Input.StylusLogic.IsTouchStylusDevice(System.Windows.Input.StylusDevice)
(Complete stacktrace omitted) Looks like I'll be sticking with the trackpad for now :-)
