Bug report #15489
Moving labels doesn't work when using virtual fields

Steps to reproduce the bug (the same workflow is working when using normal fields):
1. Create 2 new virtual fields (for example xlab and ylab)
2. Fill them with NULL
3. Use the 2 new fields in the data defined placement properties of the labeling options
4. Start editing and try to move a label using the "Move label and diagram tool"
It would be very nice to use virtual fields since label placement is very often project specific. It is not very elegant to create many new fields if the same data is used in different projects.
