emit material doesn't emit light in photon maping

Description

if you set the material emit value, it doesn't emit light in photon maping, and the console gives me this error : error lightPDF sample error! 0/0.

It works well in path tracing.

Emit objects can not emit photos, true. But if there are other light sources in the scene, you don't get the PDF error missage. The PDF error missage happens if the 'emit' object is the only light source in the scene. Simple scene attached.
