Description of Problem:
When using .net localization, the properties Name and Tag of TreeNode are missing/empty.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Create a new windows application project in Visual Studio (I tested only with .net 2)
2. Add a TreeView to the form
3. Add nodes to the tree view (optional: fill Tag property, change Text property)
4. Enable Localizable property of Form
5. Access property Name or Tag of a tree node, e.g. by adding a button with
MessageBox.Show("Selected node name: [" + treeView1.SelectedNode.Name + "] - Text: [" + treeView1.SelectedNode.Text + "] - Tag: [" + treeView1.SelectedNode.Tag + "]");
6. Compile in Visual Studio

Actual Results:
- When running in Mono the output is 
   "Selected node name: [] - Text: [Text Node0] - Tag: []"
- When running in .net, the actual result is the expected one.

Expected Results:
  "Selected node name: [namenode0] - Text: [Text Node0] - Tag: [tag-node0]"

How often does this happen? 

Additional Information:
  This happens both with TreeView.Selected as well with TreeViewEventArgs.Node. TreeView.Nodes.Find(...) doesn't work either.

Tested with following envorinments:
- Windows 7 32 bit / Mono 2.20.4
- Linux Ubuntu 10.04 32 bit / Mono 2.4.4
- Linux Ubuntu 11.10 alpha 32 bit / Mono 2.10.3
