Several times I have created a new Point layer (after setting 10 attributes) while what I wanted was to create a Polygon layer.

It would be nice if the create Vector layer dialog NOT choose a default geometry type Point for me, but would just complain when I try to create it without choosing one of the options.

ps this is an example of a PaperCut issue see https://issues.qgis.org/projects/quantum-gis/wiki/OneHundredPaperCuts
