Yes. It looks like it. getNode() on a removed node does apparently not
return 0. So the default value isn't even used, but the built in
default value "SGRawValue<type>::DefaultValue". Yes, this is yet another
sg/property bug. I'm less and less impressed. I wish I hadn't fixed the
other bug and let the worms out of the can.  :-/

So, should we sweep the ... worms ... under the rug, again? And pretend
everything is fine? Carelessly reading from removed nodes, as we always

It's risky to fix. getNode() is probably used internally and depends
on getting SGPropertyNode::REMOVED node addresses, while for the rest of
the system this is pure crap. Arghh ...

David's comment would be fine. But he hasn't replied to my other mail,
