Hmm... I would definitely expect that code to return the user's value if 
there is one, otherwise it would return the default.  I just tried it 
quickly in a 2.5a image I had lying around and it certainly seemed to 
work as expected.  Am I understanding you correctly that you're always 
getting back the default value even if the user has put in a value? 
Perhaps you could provide a bit more of the code for context...
