This is not always true, but there are cases where saving a shpefile from a KML leads to a vector where the "export/add geometry columns" produce X and Y columns with just zeros. Attached an example.

If you examine attached shapefile with ogrinfo, you will see that it has MULTIPOINT geometry type
$ogrinfo -al teste.shp Layer name: teste Geometry: Multi Point Feature Count: 50
Single MULTIPOINT geometry can contain several points, so it is impossible to extract coordinates into one row. So I think this is invalid. Any objections to close ticket?
