why custom selection field value is not saved?

I have a selection field in a custom module:

'firmFlagDescr': fields.selection([(1, u'ΕΠΙΤΗΔΕΥΜΑΤΙΑΣ'), (0, u'ΜΗ ΕΠΙΤΗΔΕΥΜΑΤΙΑΣ'), (2, u'ΠΡΩΗΝ ΕΠΙΤΗΔΕΥΜΑΤΙΑΣ')], u'Κατάσταση')

It shows up fine in UI as a drop down box with all 3 options.

The problem is however that whatever change I make in the selection, it is not saved (either through clicking save via UI or changing value from python code).

Any pointers?

PS. OpenERP v7.0

openERP doesn't like selection fields with integer keys.

Once the key-value tuple was changed to have string keys everything worked fine.
