Description of Problem:
When you use the [XmlElement(ElementName="CustomElementName")] attribute on a
serializable, nullable value type, the serializer behaves differently than if
there was no XmlElementAttribute.

When there is no attribute, the value is serialized with xsi:nil="true"
When there is an XmlSerializerAttribute, the value is not added to the xml DOM
on serialization, and trying to serialize a nil element throws an error.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Open repro project
2. Run

Actual Results:
The serializer behaving differently depending on whether an XmlElementAttribute
is included on a nullable value type, and an error parsing the value in
deserialization when the attribute is used on a nullable value that is nil.

Expected Results:
The nullable value to be parsed and displayed

How often does this happen? 
Every time

Additional Information:
Repro attached.
