External issue:


Custom fields which have “Multiple values” checked will not display correctly if more than one value is selected. This will happen even if no additional “templating” has been enabled for the field via the extended fields plugin; simply loading this plugin will break the display of any multi-select list custom fields.

This can be observed with an issue custom field both on an individual issue page and the issue list.
On the issue page the array of values is printed without formatting “onetwothreefour” instead of with commas “one, two, three, four”.
On the issue list only the first value is shown “one” instead of “one, two, three, four”.

The following workaround appears to work. I’m not familiar enough with the plugin to know if this is the proper way to fix this:
