Problem using custom action with boolean parameter from a rule in Alfresco Share

We are using ACS Starter 7.3

I have created a custom action with a boolean parameter.

public class testAction extends ActionExecuterAbstractBase {
private static Log logger = LogFactory.getLog(testAction.class);

public static final String NAME = "test-action";
public static final String PARAM_TEST_BOOL = "test-param";

protected void executeImpl(Action action, NodeRef actionedUponNodeRef) {
try {
Boolean test = (Boolean) action.getParameterValue(PARAM_TEST_BOOL);
logger.debug("TEST:" + test);

} catch (Exception e) {
logger.error("Error test'" + actionedUponNodeRef + "':", e);

protected void addParameterDefinitions(List<ParameterDefinition> paramList) {
paramList.add(new ParameterDefinitionImpl(PARAM_TEST_BOOL, DataTypeDefinition.BOOLEAN, true, getParamDisplayLabel(PARAM_TEST_BOOL)));

The action is being used from a rule in Alfresco, when the user is editing the rule,
the form shows a check box (Up to here all good) Now,
if the user doesn't check the box, the next time the rule is edited, all remains good. if the user checks the box and saves the rule, the next time the rule is edited, the form is displayed wrong an after saving the rule an error is thrown.
