I'm almost certain I saw this same behavior with 0.11.

Could somebody else check this again, please? I've been unable to reproduce this with a recent development version from trunk in Trac 0.12 and 0.13dev.

Hint: Checkout the fresh release 0.3 (see [10143] for details).

I've put out an example in wiki:TracFormsPlugin/Starter now, that worksforme.

And I suspect, that the issue is related to improper variable naming or use of multiple forms per resource without proper subcontext command in place for each of these forms. It would produce exactly such a value reset, if pressing another form's submit button, effectively overwriting saved field values with values of that other form.

I'll work on further improving the documentation a bit and close this issue, if no more complaint is raised here within a couple of weeks.

I've tried to reach the reporter directly, but got no feedback.

As mentioned above, anything above 0.2.1 should be work, but I recommend the latest stable, currently 0.4, or trunk, since these branches/revisions have a much cleaner db handling - just to make sure, that there's no db side-effect involved.

Ryan, you mentioned you'd look at this code later on. Would you do me a big favor and check this at that time and close it, if you can't reproduce as well, please? Fair enough, because since the observation and report several hundred, if not thousand lines-of-code for this plugin have been changed.

Finally got an own test environment. Hereby I confirm, that this is working with Trac 0.11 and r10490 of the plugin.

BTW, it would have not worked with a newer version at least after changeset [10021] (introduction of i18n stuff) back in April this year. Good news: Trac 0.11 backwards-compatibility has been restored just by today. So go with tracforms-0.4.1 and have fun.
