Titanium.App.Properties.getString doesn't return default on Android

SDK 1.6, Titanium 1.2.1, Android

var defaultZipcode = Titanium.App.Properties.getString("defaultZipcode", "20500");

after this, 'defaultZipcode' is null, not "20500"

Am I missing something?

    Check your code to see if anywhere you may have set defaultZipcode to an empty string. If so, the getString() method will return that instead of the default. One way to check:

    if ( Ti.App.Properties.hasProperty( "defaultZipcode" ) {
        Ti.Api.info( 'Removing previous default zipcode property' );
        Ti.App.Prooperties.removeProperty( "defaultZipcode" );
    Ti.Api.info( Ti.App.Properties.getString( "defaultZipcode", "20500" ));

      That was it - a previous null value … I guess I was looking too hard (and pulling too much hair out <G>)
