I was told by an Acrobat user that the names of the checkboxes
have to be the same, just the values to be returned are
different to get radio button behaviour. I tried to do
this, scribus was upset if I made the names of the fields
the same in the normal properties display. One sequence
that sort of worked was to create two checkboxes (check0 and
check1), then I went back and changed the name of check0 to
check1 in the PDF properties, exported the PDF file.
In Acrobat reader selecting the first check box would change
the selection on the second checkbox at the same time
resulting in both boxes either checked or unchecked.
I don't see how to change the returned values for checkboxes.

Workaround (until it's really fixed):
This issue seems to me a duplicate of 0007322 and is related to issue 0008201.
Unfortunately the workaround only solves part of the/my problem. When the PDF form is manualy filled the workaround works just fine, but when the form is filled by another program you cannot set the value of one field by its export value.
For example a yes/no radiobutton: Instead of setting a fieldgroup with the export value yes or no I have to either set a field yes to true or a field no to true.
I wonder if those fieldgroups are a Adobe proprietary extension or are standard PDF functionality?
