I tried changing the value for the Default data for new records and once I click OK, it doesn't retain my setting and just goes back to NULL.
I'm using Windows Vista 64-bit Home Premium and version 2.0b1.
This is not a bug we can address right now, as it is a bug in Qt: QSettings fails when running on 64bit Windows systems. You can see it here:

This is a wild goose.. The issue is that the default settings didnt work..
Goto m$ and ask for retention policy and writable to settings licence agreements first,
Then report back here upon a succesful and definitive answer..
