Selenium IDE 1.0.1

I recently upgraded to Selenium 1.0.1 and found that everything worked fine except that some asserts were failing around stored variables. e.g.

storeText //h2 varname

It turned out that if the text is hidden on the page then all that is stored is ''. In our case it was fixture pages that was returning some data as hidden page elements for reference.
