I just checked in a fix to AT which should fix this:


Can you test with that patch/AT svn trunk?

borg.project is an experiment in AT-less content, and if it's useful to 
you, use it or steal from it. However, there are several things 
(references, transforms, kupu, various widgets, various developers' 
features) which you only get with AT. AT is still very much the de-facto 
way of creating content types, and I don't see that changing any time soon.

Rewriting products seems drastic. Maybe fun, but drastic. :)
