LR 4.1 internal error for GPS coordinates

With the 4.1 upgrade today, the metadata panel no longer accepts GPS coordinates I use of the form "29.713669,-95.404193" (without quotes). It results in "An internal error has occurred. bad argument #1 to 'trimWhitespace' (string expected, got number)" Needs immediate correction, my images are out-of-compliance with CBS and Associated Press guidelines and have to be edited in another program. Did you regression-test this?

Adobe has acknowedged the problem; see this thread:

As a workaround, you can use this form for entering coordinates:

29.713669W , 95.404193S

No matter which form you use for entering the coordinates, LR does store them correctly in the industry-standard GPS fields in the photos' metadata.
