SSIS: Can't link Tasks in Container?

I've just come across an issue whereby I have an existing For Each Loop container with a single dataflow task within. To develop the package further, I wanted to add an Execute T-SQL task within the container before the dataflow task so dragged over the task icon and configured it. However, when I tried to join the tasks with a precedence constraint, an error was thrown:

Cannot create connector. Cannot connect the executables from different containers.

This seemed a bit confusing as the tasks were definitely both within the container. However, a simple restart of Visual Studio 2008 solved the issue so this looks like a bug with the GUI.
