Bug report #15081
Impossible to clear geometry of feature from a shapefile

Select all vertices of a (already saved) feature in a shapefile, click DEL to erase them.
They get wiped and message bar shows: "Geometry has been cleared. Use Add part tool to set geometry for this feature".
Click to save and your geometry reappears with this critical message from bar: "Layer XXXX: OGR error creating geometry for feature X: ".
At the same time, you can add geometryless feature from the attribute table dialog.
This looks no coherent.
