Works fine here. I just data define link it over to an appropriate

- I thought it had to do with temporary layer, hence switched to shp : fail
- swithed field type from integer to double: nothing
- I thought it was because i had not saved the file yet (something that
would be related to auxiliary storage) then I saved the file: niente
- May be it's a matter of qgs vs qgz? Neither

I always get that odd message about attribute not set.
I'm on Win 10 using master c94eefb6df. What could trigger that?


The only thing I can think of is that the docs are a little unclear here:
