Delphi FMX: Saving and loading container children

  

Starting from this layout at design time.
(It contains several TLayout, TGridPanelLayout, TText elements as example)

At runtime, I am saving the complete objects structure to a file using ObjectBinaryToText

But when loading the file back from the file using ObjectTextToBinary, I get this result

Why the sub-controls are not taking the exqct same layout as saved before?
The file structure seems to be OK and containing all sub-controls as described when saving my form with the IDE
Here is a piece of code demonstrating the problem.
