I've created bug 398274 (https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=398274)
and attached a pile of unit-tests.  They identify this and another wee bug. 
I assigned it to Jonathan for fix. :-)

Just in passing, the XML format for the settings is only used when the Form
has Localizable=true, that's why I wasn't seeing it initially in my VS2005
test project.  And the comma format occur when VS is running on a machine
which such a current culture; and the comma/decimal point only occurs with
non-integer percentages.  So a workaround is to negate any of those -- as
you did, making the percentages whole numbers is likely easiest.
