In the end I tracked down the behaviour with the attached program
behaviour with an initially empty table:

7 : insert two records with values in the columns
two records show up, # 1,2
as expected
9 : show al records
whereas two are to be expected
8 : add records with default values
two records show up # 1,2
as expected in an empty table
two records # 3,4
record numbers as expected, but where are records 1,2?  (ABC)
the default records are present #1,2
the previous valued records 3,4 not
  unexpected, but identical to first behaviour issuing 7
4 records show up # 1-4
record numbers as expected when valued records are not present
0  :  I quit

to summarize:
It is not possible to store records in the database with valued columns.
Records with default values can be stored and retrieved, they are the ones that are persistent
Additional strange behaviour is that after adding valued records (3,4) also the already present records with default values (1,2) should have shown show up, remark (ABC).

What happens if you actually call commit()?

your suggestion is a bit to cryptic for me
- you mean intermediate messages from Python: there are none
- you mean to change a command in another format
  newbie with programming experience
  drop me a program line / show three records where one is your alternative

David means you should replace the line


in your script which does not invoke the method with


Side note: as long as you are a newbie it is a good idea to ask on the python mailing list first before adding a report to the bug tracker.

Sorry, I didn't mean to be cryptic.  Yes, Peter has figured out what I was trying to say.

that did the trick, my confidence is restored.

sorry to have bothered you, I could have found in myself, by comparing differences. Just staring blind after many attempts. 
I did look in the list, but could not find an issue that matched my description of the problem.
