when although and while mean the same thing.

while your behavior is typically scorned, in this case it's fine.
although your behavior is typically scored, in this case it's fine.

is one more formal? which is preferable, if one is?

Neither is more formal or preferable. Fowler's Modern English Usage and the Oxford English Dictionary say “while” can mean “although.”
