Please just strip the Value properties out of the DFM before opening it in
the designer.
In the code, put the Stored directive to false if you want to avoid this in
the future.
I'm probably just going to remove this property since it is entirely
I merged it in for a user without testing this sufficiently and am paying
the price.
It's great to get improvements. I'll try and be more careful in the future.
That's my part of the deal.
