I've experienced the same problem. Apparently it is fixed in 1.3.5. 
For now, I've had to 'cheat' with something like:

<input type="checkbox" name="validay" value="1" [+ $obj->{validday}=~/1/ and 'checked'
+]> 1 &nbsp;
<input type="checkbox" name="validay" value="2" [+ $obj->{validday}=~/2/ and 'checked'
+]> 2 &nbsp;
<input type="checkbox" name="validay" value="3" [+ $obj->{validday}=~/3/ and 'checked'
+]> 3 &nbsp;
<input type="checkbox" name="validay" value="4" [+ $obj->{validday}=~/4/ and 'checked'
+]> 4 &nbsp;
