Summary06997: Zero values in Array (Numbers) disappear
DescriptionWhen using a numerical matrix (type: Array (Numbers)), zero values will not persist. If you enter a zero value in any of the input fields, this value will have vanished when you return from some other question group, or when you reload after a save.

This is especially annoying for large matrixes, where a lot of the values may be perfectly valid zeroes. If this question is mandatory, you will have to fill in the vanished zeroes over and over again.
Steps To Reproducecf. attached demo
Additional InformationThe value stored in the responses db is 0. Obviously, the error happens when restoring the input field from the db.

Behaviour discovered in builds since 121115 (first use of limesurvey), but probably existing in earlier builds. Currently using build 121127 with patches from issue 06980 (Numerical input strips zeros). I suspected issue 06980 to be the same as this issue, but the fix doesn't help here.

While glancing over the fix, I found this line. Is this a typo?

     5631 + $answertypeclass .=" mumeric-item text";

Note the "mumeric"!

I can confirm the bug is fixed (I locally corrected the "mumeric" issue without uploading a patch).
