Description Nicholas Frechette 2011-12-02 10:47:40 UTC
A simple class inheriting from ApplicationSettingsBase with only user scope
properties + default values. When calling Save(), the xml file is generated but
the wrong <section name="<wrong here>"/> is generated and under the
<userSettings ../> as well. This prevents the saved user settings to be
reloaded properly when the application restarts. Changing those two things
manually in the xml file to my namespace.settingsclass solves the reloading

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a class that implements ApplicationSettingsBase
2. Create an instance and call the Save() method
3. Restart the application and attempt to load the saved settings
4. The loaded settings are the default values
Actual Results:  
Default values are always loaded

Expected Results:  
The saved values should be loaded
