We're building a .NET 2.0 GUI application. A part of a project is a localization. According to advices of msdn we have created *.resx files and sent them to foreign team that performs localization using WinRes tool.
Several of our user controls contained SplitContainer control. We never thought this could present a problem. Unfortunately it is!

We started digging the WinRes.exe (thanks to .NET Reflector) and found the solution: we had to define the name of split container the way that its parent name appeared before (in ascending sort order) than splitter itself.
Say if you have a form "MyForm" and split container "ASplitContainer" then you should rename split container to say "_ASplitContainer". In this case resources are stored as:
