SSRS: Why is Visual Studio stripping these properties?

curiouswebster used Ask the Experts™
This project still uses Visual Studio 2005 SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio and is doing some strange things.

I added a single column to an SSRS Report and get it working fine.

1) I Added a new return column to the stored procedure
2) I added the column to the SSRS report
3) On the Data tab for the report, I c licked the ... and opened the Properties Dialog, then clicked the Fields tab. I then added the new field at the bottom of the list.

It all works fine. But when I look at the source that's changed in Git, I see problems.

Does anyone know what could have caused this problem? Why did these get deleted? Are they not needed?

Are you sure that everyone uses the same 2005 BI edition? While I have never seen such a behavior in SSRS, I looks like different tool versions used by different developers in VS in general.
