Why does the decimal place get shifted when using an ASP.NET MaskedEditExtender?

I have a textbox that accepts a monetary rate on an ASP.NET page.  The rate is fetched from a database and populated in the textbox.  Everything works correctly until I add an ASP.NET AJAX MaskedEditExtender to the textbox.  With that in place, the decimal place of the incoming rate (from the database) is shifted 2 decimal places to the right, i.e. $10 is shown as $1000.  Has anyone encountered this problem?
<asp:TextBox 

ID="TextBoxRate" 

runat="server" 

Text='<%# Bind("Rate") %>'>

</asp:TextBox>

<cc1:MaskedEditExtender 

ID="MaskedEditExtenderRate" 

runat="server" 

DisplayMoney="Left" 

InputDirection="RightToLeft" 

Mask="999,999,999.99" 

MaskType="Number" 

TargetControlID="TextBoxRate">

</cc1:MaskedEditExtender>

If you format the money column ('rate' in my case) to Decimal(18, 2) in SQL it will work correctly with the MaskedEditExtender.
CAST(Rate AS DECIMAL(18, 2)) as Rate
