[Qgis-developer] New point shapefile

Has this:


(ancient) bug somehow come to life?

When I create a new point shapefile in version 1.6, on WinXP, 
each new point is located exactly on top of the previous 
regardless of where I click in the map composer.  I can use 
the "Move feature" tool to move the points around, and view 
their attribs in the table, so they are indeed created, but 
not in the clicked location. If I save edits and restart 
editing, all additional points are on top of the last entered 
point, again ignoring where I click.

This behavior appears only in 1.6 (in 1.7 it seems to be OK), 
and only on shapefiles (not spatialite) and only on Windows. 
Since 1.6 is the current stable (I guess...) perhaps the fix 
should be "backported".
