It is possible to create a new field of any type with empty name when creating a shapefile, guess this should not be possible.

Any news on this bug? It still persists in 1.5 (34144244 (SVN r12954))
On top of that, user can create a field without setting length for text field, which will be set to 80 characters.
IMHO, this is not very intuitive, either 80 should be shown when field is created or warning message should be shown.
