Windows Forms CheckBox Control Alignment in Visual Studio 2008 under Vista

Do you have checkbox controls in Windows Forms in Visual Studio 2008 where the text label uses a colon (:), e.g. Label: <checkbox>? If so, and you move from XP Pro to Vista, you may hit the same problem I did. The properties were (incorrectly) set to CheckAlign = MiddleLeft and RightToLeft = Yes.
