I have tested this scenario and was not able to reproduce the same behavior. Could you test the following Code Library example: Customize the Advanced Form with the Advanced Template User Controls, and see if the behavior in question can be reproduced at your end.
Also, what is the version of our controls and the version of IE that you are using?
All the best,
