We must admit this is a problem within the control but unfortunately we cannot suggest you a workaround at the moment. Our developers are aware of this issue and will fix it for the service pack release scheduled for the first half of December; also we will add options for label customization as well (content and formatting).
Sorry for the temporary inconvenience.
All the best,
the Telerik team
