"Active Deployment Configuration"-setting in Visual Studio 2012 is always "Default"

There is a bug in current Visual Studio 2012 which always sets the "Active Deployment Configuration" to "Default" after re-opening the program/solution.
If you set "No Activation", this is correctly stored in the .csproj-file but VS ignores this and preselectes "Default" on opening:

I reported this to Microsoft and finally got an answer that said I should install the Microsoft Office Developer Tools which were released in March 2013 (can be found here). After installing, the bug indeed was fixed and now the configuration is loaded correctly:

Personally I think, Microsoft should fix this bug in a Visual Studio update but not in an separate downloadable add-on because it's a bug by Visual Studio itself.
