Thanks! I filed the bug, but then realized there was already a ticket
( in the subject.

For the time being, a workaround solution, based on the comments to this
ticket, was to start my local layout like this:


Counter chapter
	LabelString "\\arabic{chapter}"

Style Chapter
	LabelString	"\thechapter."
	TocLevel 0


This solves chapter, section, subsection numbering alike. Thanks a lot!
