Multi checkbox options aren't selected if there is a script on the field


I am trying the behaviours plugin (0.5.3) in Jira and noticed that it doesn't work really good with multi checkbox.
I created a custom field as multi checkbox and added a new behavior on it. If one option is selected a select field is displayed.
I used a small groovy script for it:

FormField cField = getFieldById("customfield_10397");
FormField sField = getFieldById("customfield_10396");


if (cField.getFormValue() == "10226") {
} else {
 sValue = sField.getFormValue();

This works good so far. But if I want to edit the issue the selected options aren't selected.

Is it a bug or do I use the API in a wrong way?

This widget could not be displayed.

i don't have knowlde on behaviour plugin,

but you can doit by using javascript, if you want you can try with this code by adding in field description of select list in field configuration

<script type="text/javascript">  
jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function (e,context) {
function callFunction(){
	//assume you have two check boxes 
	$("#customfield_10397-1,#customfield_10397-2).click(function() {

function showorhidefields(){
var checkedCheckboxes = $("input:checkbox[name=customfield_10397]:checked");
		//select field
checkedCheckboxes.each(function () {
	var selVal=$(this).val(); 
		if(selVal != '10226'){//id of Yes check box
