FIX: "Internal error" message when you run an MDX query in SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services

Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2008 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2008 fix release.
SYMPTOMS
When you run a Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) query in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services, an internal error occurs, and you receive the following error message:
Internal error: An unexpected error occurred (file 'mdsonar.cpp', line 740, function 'MDSet::RunSonarForSingleTupleSet').
Note This issue does not occur in SQL Server 2008 R2 Analysis Services.
