Yes, this is a problem where if you check both blank and phone, the
second error message will blank the first. The workaround is to only
either check for required or phone, not both. I would fix the tutorial
-- but it appears to not have anything for phone_day.

This will be fixed in 4.7.x as the routines have been redone to
some extent. I didn't decide to fix it in 4.6 -- probably more risk
than it is worth.

NOTE: The most common thing that can cause problems is encryption
failures. Check your error log for those things....there will almost
always be an error message. If you get XddeyERG.cry permission denied,
it means you don't have write permission on your catalog directory. I
will move that to ScratchDir in the next version.

"too dumb for conditions".
