Problems changing alias for remote repo to "default"

Dave Scotese
created an issue

I have a remote repo at bitbucket and had a target set in TortoiseHg pointing to it, but its alias was "bitbucket". I read on StackExchange that you have to use the alias "default" to set a default, so I changed the alias to "default". The alias listed in the Synchronize dialog still said "bitbucket" so I edited it again and changed it to "default' (again). When I hit save this time, I got this error, with a request to report the bug:

** Mercurial version (2.5.2).  TortoiseHg version (2.7.1)

KeyError: 'bitbucket'

Workaround: instead of editing the existing entry, just create a new one to the same URL but use the alias "default". I don't know if this actually
