Bug report #16792
Fails to handle multipart features as shapefile geometry type after merging

Since the new patch to 2.18.10 QGIS seems to have problems with the Geometrytypes for (at least) Shapefiles.
Following steps to reproduce:
- create new polygon shapefile
- add 2 disjoint polygons
- use "merge selected features" tool to create a multipart polygon
- save edits
The edits will not be saved, throwing following error message:
Could not commit changes to layer <layername here> Errors: ERROR: 1 feature(s) not added - geometry type is not compatible with the current layer.
This exact operation work just fine in version 2.18.9.
If a shapefile exists which already contains multipart features, those are displayed correctly. If single part features are added to that shapefile it is also possible to save. New multipart features would cause above mentioned error message.

The same error occurs with lines shapefiles even with two matching vertex (snapped)of two line features after use "merge selected features" and try to save.
I did this exact same operaction with the same shapefile on LTR Version 2.14.16 with no problems.
