[Eeglablist] Added fields to events, which are suddenly gone

I have an odd eeglab behaviour, which I don't understand: I added an
additional field to the events in my data set in order to do some
additional analyses. This works fine. After adding the field to each
event in the MATLAB commandline and calling eeglab redraw I can, for
instance, generate an Channel ERP Image using the gui, sorting trials by
the new field.
When I want to use this field to select epochs (via the corresponding
menu), for instance, selecting only those epoch for which the
time-locking event's new field-value is 0, I get a second data set and
all the events still have the new field. That's just fine. However,
going back to the original data set to select all epochs for which the
new field's value is 2, I notice that the new field is gone for all the
First I suspected eeglab would do some kind of consistency test, notice
that the events have a field which is not present in the urevents and
correct that. That's why in a second attempt I added the new field to
the urevents (rather than the events) and then copied the new field to
each event from its corresponding urevent.
Again trying to select a subset of the epochs, the new field is removed
from the original data set for both, events and urevents. Since I cannot
see, how this might be sensible behaviour I suspect that I do something
wrong, due to my limited understanding of the structure spanning between
event, urevent and epoch.
Can someone help me?!?
