Problem: Shapefile editing may cause data loss
In some circumstances, the editing of shapefiles with MapObjects 2.1 may lead to the loss of data. When editing String fields, leading characters from an adjacent field may be stripped. These adjacent fields may be of any type. This does not affect any non-Shapefile data sources, such as ArcSDE.
