Peter - thanks for the detailed bug report!
I believe this should be fixed with the following PR
(https://github.com/galaxyproject/galaxy/pull/273) that has been
merged into release_15.05 on github as well as the dev branch. I tried
to fixed a few different bugs related to boolean and select handling
with in the confines of tests - so let me know if it didn't fix this
exact use case and I will look at it some more.
There is now this test case that verifies the correctness of boolean
test parameters inside of conditionals
- let me know if you see anything wrong with it. The test can be run
with by executing:
./run_tests.sh -framework -id boolean_conditional
from Galaxy's root.
