thanks for your fast answer, i was very astonished ;)

to my problem.

- i changed the geoserver wfs settings to normal.
- i changed to wfs 1.0
- in the mapbender db was MultiSurfacePropertyType and I changed it to

but the error still occurs. the epsq should be the same.

and I also get in the error logfile "WFS gazetteer: geometry type unknown".
