Deleting shapes in shapefiles does not work

After opening an existing ESRI-shapefiel (polygons) and deleting some of the shapes qgis marks the deleted lines in the dbase-file with
*. When saving the shapefile the marked entries are still in the shapefile. Opening such a shapefile in ArcGIS shows all in qgis deleted elements. It seems OGRLayer REPACk is not used in saving.

Repack shapefiles when saving after deleting features

  • QgsVectorDataProvider::dataChanged() will be emitted
  • QgsVectorLayer::dataChanged() will be emitted
  • Clears QgsVectorLayerCache
  • Reloads the attribute table
  • Clears the selection

Looking forward to people complaining about their lost selection...
