I have created a webtemplate that I use to provision a sitecollection site which works fine but when I try to add an Heading or link to the Global Navigation through UI it's not working correctly: somehow the links gets removed from the Global Navigation.

Does anyone ever experienced this behavior? What could I have done wrong? is this a know issue/bug?

I have replaced it with the following one

    <NavBar Name="SharePoint Top Navbar" ID="1002"></NavBar>

Now its working.
