@wohugb @Ocramius i think i know what's that problem....

namespace MyModule\Form;

use Zend\Form\Fieldset;
use Zend\Form\Element;
use Zend\InputFilter\InputFilterProviderInterface;

class SomeFieldset extends Fieldset implements InputFilterProviderInterface

    public function init()

        $id = new Element\Hidden('id');

    public function getInputFilterSpecification()
        $filter = array(

            'id' => array(
                'required' => false

            'description' => array(
                'required' => true

        return $filter;

If will fail, because you say "description" is required (but not available).
Since the form cannot apply the error to an element, the message is empty...

-> Had that error also some time ago (is really hard to fine out, when you dont know how to search for this)
