The default value stuff was not working properly before, and thats why the
test cases were added.

Its a miracle that task works at all!

Test cases.  Test cases!  Test cases!  This is what we need to verify all
this stuff works as it should.

Careful with the "your".  If you have a look at the differences, I didn't
really change that much between 1.5 and 1.6 (but enough to break something
apparently).  I did not introduce any new variables.

Refactoring - changing the internal structure of code without changing the
outward functionality.  But in this case I plan on fixing the broken
functionality in the process by adding test cases that identify the flaws
and then fix them.  :)
