This is related to the way a combo-box defaults to "blank" even when there is only one valid option. Because we hide the rendering of the combobox when there is only one puppet proxy, it can't be set to the right value.

Need to investigate why the proxy isn't being set to the only valid option when there's only one proxy.

You can work around this with this patch:

diff --git a/app/helpers/hosts_and_hostgroups_helper.rb b/app/helpers/hosts_and_hostgroups_
index d03c609..885a2e7 100644
--- a/app/helpers/hosts_and_hostgroups_helper.rb

     proxies = SmartProxy.joins(:features).where(:features => { :name => "Puppet" })
     # do not show the ca proxy, if we have only one of those and its the same as the puppe
-    fields =  puppet_ca(f) unless ca.count == 1 and ca.map(&:id) == proxies.map(&:id)

Although you'll have to edit your hosts again :(
