ecart and paypal standard

I have discovered (after a great deal of searching) the solution to a problem previously mentioned but did not get a response to my question.

THe issue and previous post is:
I have started getting an error message when customers go to pay using PayPal.
The error that comes up is:

"Unable to process payment. Please contact the merchant as the shipping address provided by the merchant is invalid, and the merchant has requested that your order must be shipped to that address."

The correct response was:
on the confirm page, look for the following form element:

<input type="hidden" name="address_override" id="address_override" value="1" />
and change it's value to 0:

<input type="hidden" name="address_override" id="address_override" value="0" />

My questions is: How do I avoid the problem when using the Wizards in the future to avoid this problem?

When you use the checkout wizard with Payments Standard the address override will be set to 1 so that it uses the address specified in the checkout form. There is no option within the wizard that will change this setting, if you need it to be set to 0 then you will need to update it after the fact.

I have logged this for eCart so that it can be reviewed. Here is also a link to the HTML Variables that PayPal works with in Payments Standard:
