Bug report #14158
regression: default "save as" value for ESPR Shapefile prevents creation of .shp

Currently under master, the save as dialog sets the SHPT layer option to NULL for the ESPR Shapefile driver. This translates into the creation of a .dbf-only dataset. In previous versions of QGIS, I'm pretty sure the SHPT option was not set, as I have many times in the past saved KML files as shapefiles without having to modify layer options.
While it might be useful to expose the SHPT option, having "dbf-ony" option set by default is not good (understatement of the week :) ).
I have no idea when this regressed.

One way to fix this is to remove the SHPT option altogether, since QGIS itself now allows to modify the geometry type.
