Well I have them installed and they work fine. I did manage to get the error you spoke of but that is if you use a shortcut that is set to run Celestia in fullscreen mode from the start. If you start it in window mode and then move to full screen you should be fine. And yes I did try this on both Celestia 1.2.4 and the new prerelease 1.2.5 and still had no problem.
Try reworking your shortcut this might help.
