U4-2553 - Double tabs when installing package that makes use of Dictionary Items to translate document types

I think this bug has been silently known in the community for some time. I just discovered it yesterday but some of the guys I spoke to sounded like they have known about it for some while.

So now I think it's time to report the issue :)

When using Dictionary items to translate the document type properties tabs are being created twice when the package XML is being read.

I have attached two package XML files - one called "bug.xml" and one called "works.xml". The thing is that when the XML is generated the Tab where a property should be assigned resolves to the translated name. So for instance I have a tab called "Content". In the dictionary item I have made an item called "TabContent", which is refer to on my document typs "Tab" section like "#TabContent" (Without the citation signs). If I manually change the package.xml to use #TabContent the tabs only shows once as it's supposed to.

Hope this makes sense - otherwise I'll be happy to provide more information if needed.
