It does -- in the failing case.

If you look (carefully) at your code, you see that it can return "None" only
when also "self.getProperty(key)" returns "None".
Some other things, too, have evaluated to some false value, in this case.

To analyse such problems, put "import pdb; pdb.set_trace()"
in the surprising code. The effect will be that the code
enters "pdb" at this line and allows you to single step
through the code and see precisely what goes on.

Of course, you can also use a different debugger...
