Due to a bug in core, http://drupal.org/node/761608, the default theme settings may not be inherited from the base theme. This leads to an initially empty theme settings form, which should actually be populated with the default theme settings from the layoutstudio base theme. This issue will manifest itself until the sub-theme settings have been edited and saved once. Until then, it can generated PHP warnings/notices throughout the site.
