#5511: xprofile wp-admin shows duplicate fields for pre-2.0 custom field types
 Reporter:  DJPaul        |      Owner:
     Type:  defect (bug)  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal        |  Milestone:  2.0
Component:  XProfile      |    Version:  2.0
 Severity:  normal        |   Keywords:  needs-testing has-patch
 The https://wordpress.org/plugins/buddypress-xprofile-custom-fields-type/
 plugin implements several custom field types. As it was written before
 2.0, it's a good test that the xprofile field type re-implementation
 hasn't caused any regressions or breaks in backwards compatibility.

 I've been in touch with the author of that plugin via email (hi Miguel!)
 who is testing trunk, and there's an issue in the display of the custom
 field types in the wp-admin profile fields management screen. The custom
 field types (not registered into BP in the new 2.0 style) show the custom
 template, along with the default textbox. Screenshot:
 http://cl.ly/image/3W3R2O3e3a1N -- the unwanted textboxes are on the left,
 and the custom field type's template on the right.

 It's showing the default textbox because that's what the field type class
 defaults to if you tell it to create a field type that it doesn't know

 This regression's been introduced because it looks like I mis-read a
 `switch` statement in the `xprofile_admin_field()` function; it looks like
 a relatively simple fix. I've attached a patch here which works for me,
 and I'm going to ask Miguel to get it before I commit it.
