Behaviours plugin hides but won't unhide a field

Hi everyone -

I'm playing with the behaviours plugin, and I'm trying to create a record to track our builds (it's for audit - don't ask). We'd like to have the submitter specify branches, tags, or trunk, then pop up a field asking them to populate with the name of the branch or name of the tag.

I have the following code associated with the field where they specify branches/tags/trunk:

FormField locField = getFieldById ("SVN Location 2.0")
FormField branchField = getFieldByName ("Branch Name")
FormField tagField = getFieldByName ("Tag Name")

String location = (String) locField.getFormValue()

if (location == "branches") { 
    branchField.setHidden(false)
}
else {
    branchField.setHidden(true) 
}

The code works on the initial read, as "Branch Name" starts off as hidden, however, if you choose 'branches' in SVN Location 2.0, the field does not appear.

We're running JIRA 5.1.4.

Thanks!

Bill
