Can't get openAtStart to work

I am using WAB 1.0 Developer Ed. I have a web app with customised widgets, including a custom urlParameterHandler widget that should execute a Query configured in a slightly enhanced version of the out-of-the-box query widget with values passed as query string parameters on the web app's url.

I am trying to get the query widget to load/open at startup so that the urlParameterHandler widget can send it data through the publishData mechanism of the BaseWidget. I have added the openAtStart property, set to true, to the query (in-panel) widget in config.json (attached) under client/stemapp folder of WAB. I add my query widget to the panel and save the web app, but the openAtStart property never transfers to the config.json under server/apps/<appid>.

I saw that there was a problem with openAtStart during beta but couldnt access the issue details, so I dont know if that has been fixed in the released version.

Am I doing something wrong?
