Yeah, that's a known issue. I actually ran into it while testing 2.7.2
the other night :). In 2.7.2 installing the assemblies to the GAC is
optional for just that reason.

To make it easier, for 2.7.3 I think I'll change the assembly versions
when building in DEBUG mode.

Your only option, then, is to uninstall 2.7.1 and install 2.7.2
without the GAC assemblies. And curse Microsoft for the frustrating
assembly resolution order.
