Sales Order: total weight inconsistency when using sales type BOM



The case is as folows:

I create a Sales Order, with one line. But this is a master item (sales type bill of materials), it has two components. That's why sbo puts two additional lines in the document. So this sales order will have 3 lines.

The master item's weight is 10kg, the components's are 3kg and 4kg.

If I press ctrl-W, the "Volume and Weight Calculation" window shows only the master item, and 10 kg.

If I send the document to printer, i can see 17kg total amount.

The layout uses "Sales Order:weight" to show the total amount, and it works well in other cases. But not in this one because every single item is taken into account, regardless of being the master or a component.

I don't know if it is a bug, or we should use another field to display total amount.

We might forbid to fill sales weight info for master items as well. This way the weight would be correct (because master weight is always the sum of its components' weight - unlike my sample above) But in this case the 'Volume and weight calculation" would be incorrect.
