Summary: Value attribute in IniFile element cannot be empty

Initial Comment:
I am using WiX build 3309 and am trying to add a line to
an Ini file with no value.  At first I used Value="" within
the IniFile element, and I got a helpful error message
saying

"The IniFile/@Value attribute's value cannot be an
empty string.  If you want the value to be null or empty,
simply remove the entire attribute."  

I then removed the Value attribute from the IniFile
element, but got a not so helpful error message saying

"fatal error LGHT0010: There was an error importing
table: IniFile with file: C:\DOCUME~1\BSIMON~1
\LOCALS~1\Temp\vg6q0q0v\IniFile.idt"

I get the same fatal error when I tried Value=" " (a single
space).  There were no errors when I tried Value="0".  

According to  
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?
url=/library/en-us/msi/setup/inifile_table.asp
the Value in the IniFile table cannot be null.  The error
messages from light should indicate this.
