I have added the enterprise keyword column to my custom content type that is tied to a publishing page. It works fine editing and publish pages based on this layout unless I set the keyword column to be required. If I do this I get an error message when pressing the Publish action stating "You must fill out all required properties before completing this action." and then I get transfered to edit properties for the page. It works fine if I save the page first and then publish it.

The control on my page layout looks like this:

<asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderID="PlaceHolderMain" runat="server">
  <Taxonomy:TaxonomyFieldControl ID="TaxonomyFieldControl" FieldName="TaxKeyword" runat="server" />

Have someone stumbled upon this problem before?
