Error "Field 'latLonBoundingBox' is required" when creating layer


When I create layer (any shapefile) I click "Compute from data" to fill native bbox and "Compute from native bounds" to fill Lat/Lon bbox. I've always filled bboxes like that. But now I've noticed that after I click "Compute from native bounds" the error is appearing - Field 'latLonBoundingBox' is required, though all fields are getting filled and layer then can be saved without any errors. Is it some validation issue?

I've attached my bbox settings.

I can however confirm the second report :

This could be a locale issue: the bounding box given by Sergey uses commas (",") as the decimal separator.

Sergey, what happens if you manually replace the commas (",") with full stops (".") and try to submit the page?

Ben, there is no problem with submitting the page. When I click "Compute from native bounds", error is immediately appeared. Though "Lat/Lon bounding box" is getting filled - right after click too. So my one click produces error and fills bbox. Then I click Save button - and page is submitted OK regardless of the error. Full stops (".") produces another 4 error about type mismatch.

And one thing - the error is appeared on the top of the page. So you should scroll to see it.

Hi Sergery, yes, that's what I did... however, I've tried again and now I see the issue... oh well
