Problem with Checkboxes on contact form

I created a Contact Form page and added 4 checkboxes in a checkbox group to it. Everytime I modify the form in the CMS it duplicates the checkboxes. Right now I have 5 instances of each checkbox field. I have tried deleting and recreating the form. I could delete them from the database but I'm hoping for a way to prevent this from happening in the first place. I'm also worried that if I make a mistake deleting them, it will break the submissions piece.

Environment: SS v2.0.1 PHP v5.2.0 Apache v2

Delete them directly in the Database. You can empty all EditableXXX tables, if you do not need to preserve any fields. Otherwise you have to delete only fields, which you do not need. Especially the fields with ParentID = 0;

Before making any such a form, first save the page and then start adding fields. This is a bug of SilverStripe.

Thanks, I only have one of each checkbox, but now I have a different issue.

There are 5 check boxes in the check box group and they are all checked when the page loads.

They are not checked in the CMS, and that field in the DB has a value of 0, but for some reason they are all checked.

In Safari for Windows I can not uncheck them. Is there something I missed?

UPDATE: I figured out the problem with not being able to uncheck them in Safari, but I still have the issue of them all coming up checked by default.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

I'm having the same problem with Silverstripe 2.2.1, which can be viewed here:

Any resolution?

This same problem is still happening in 2.2.2. Any chance this will be fixed soon?
