Problem Adding Service Reference to Windows Phone Application

There is a little problem with my mango :(
Every time I try to add a reference to a Web Service I end up with an empty Reference.cs.

Sad. The  bug has already being sent to MS see:

The workaround:

Use the SlSvcUtil.exe that can be found at:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows Phone\v7.1\Tools

Just call it with like:

SlSvcUtil.exe http://localhost:50002/DBServices.svc?wsdl

NOTE: For some reason I have found that the 7.1 version of the tool crashes with a StackOverflow.
If it happens to you just use the 7.0 version
