This bug is not resolved and it also is not caused by building. The settings gets lost somewhere in Properties when changing tabs.

# Steps to Reproduce

1. Create Single View iOS app
2. Right click on Project and select Properties > iOS Build > Advanced
3. Select an internationalization set
4. Select another tab in Properties -> iOS Application
4. Save and close Properties 
5. Reopen Properties Properties > iOS Build > Advanced


# Expected Results

Step 5 should show the same selected internationalization

# Actual Results

The setting has been lost

# Workaround for builds

1. Right click on Project and select Properties > iOS Build > Advanced
2. Select the required internationalization set
3. Save but don't change tabs and don't close Properties 
4. Build


This bug is very severe, because it messes up my production builds, if I don't pay 200% attention to the settings before each appstore-build.
