non-preferred label error


I'm using ver 1.7.8 and facing errors during import of 'objects' records.
Some have nonpreferred_labels, some have not ([blank])
Mapping uses merge_on_idno_with_replace

merge option works fine.
on_idno is ok too, I do not allow duplicates in app.conf settings.
with_replace is ok, even in erasing with [blank] value.

Except for nonpreferred_labels field.
the import log reports : Could not add non-preferred label to ca_objects: Name must be at least 1 characters
I can import or modify a not empty content of nonpreferred_labels field, but I can't remove it (error message if no value [blank]).
And the records show several occurences of Alternate title, same quantity as successive imports of not empty values (also several duplicates). Empty content in import files are ignored (should be erased !)

Is there an error lack in my configuration?
app.conf : only unique idno modification for objects and entities
mappping : no option, no refinery, mapping field by field.
