Improvements and fixes

Fixes the following issues:
  • When you import timephased data by using XML files in Project 2010, the <WorkContour> tags are ignored if timephased actual work exists and not all remaining work values exist.
  • When you resource level, assignments that are updated from Project Web App may be ignored by leveling, and the Remaining Availability value for certain time periods is incorrect.
  • When you try to unlink a subproject from a master project that has a custom field with a lookup table defined, Project 2010 crashes if the subproject doesn't have the same lookup table definition as in the master project yet the custom field has values.
