So I've been getting around to updating my features to use weight 2.x recently and I ran into a problem. Whenever I build a feature and export the appropriate weight settings as Strongarm variables (weight_enable_content_type, weight_ranged_content_type, and weight_enabled_content_type) I get no problems, the variables export just fine and the array appears to be intact.
However, when I turn that feature on on a new site, weight appears to be disabled on the content type I exported it for. So I double checked my features page, and the feature is not over ridden. I also checked my Views where I am using a table style with weight to create a changer, and it does not function correctly.
So on a whim, I changed the weight settings for that node type back to what I had them when I created and exported the feature. I rechecked the feature status and it still wasn't overridden, and now the view worked just fine.
Am I doing something wrong, or is this genuinely broken?
