Steps to reproduce:
1. Add a new series
2. Enter something like "Something, A., A." into the publisher field
3. Exit dialogue
4. Reenter dialogue, and find the publisher field empty.
5. Additional entries will be added, but there is no way to remove the buggy entries.
Publisher field empty, no entries, cannot be edited/deleted (other than appended)
Publisher field not empty, entries deletable.
Workaround (if any):
Maybe update the properties via the REST-Interface? I couldnt get this done though (missing expertise).
