Can't set winner in a contest

Vote:
 

Used the code in the SDK to submit answers to a contest. The answers get submitted and can be viewed in the EPiserver Community Administration UI. 

When clicking on the "Set as winner"-button on an entry, I receive the following runtime error:

Is this a bug?

I just tried this out on a test site running CMS R2 SP2 and Community 3.2 SP1 (with hotfix 1 and 2), and I got the same error.

Seems to be a bug in the EPiServer.Community.Web.Administration.ContestInfoControl.dataListSubmissions_UpdateCommand method where a User is added to a readonly UserCollection (instead of the UserCollection being cloned before adding the User, which would be the correct way of doing it). Could this be the case?

Yes, this is a known issue. I don't think the fix has yet been released as port of a public update, but Support has a fix available.
