This is what i see in browser: Foswiki detected an internal error - please check your Foswiki logs and webserver logs for more information.

Can't use an undefined value as an ARRAY reference

The foswiki warn log shows: Can't use an undefined value as an ARRAY reference at .../foswiki/lib/Foswiki/Plugins/ line 556

This is what i see in apache log: [warn] mod_fcgid: stderr: Can't use an undefined value as an ARRAY reference at .../foswiki/lib/Foswiki/Plugins/ line 556.

Is this a problem in extension FormPlugin or of misuse?

I'm experiencing same issue with Foswiki 1.1.6. As I found out does this error occur only if "elementformat" is used. Here is an example I use to reproduce that error:
   elementformat="$t $e $n"

   * test = %<nop>URLPARAM{"test"}%

Initially the page is rendered fine. But when entering some text and press submit it results into this "Can't use an undefined value as an ARRAY reference" error. Apaches error.log is reveiving the following messages:

If I remove the line elementformat="$t $e $n" in the example then everything works fine.

Is there any help available for this problem?
