SharedObject not updating between tabs

Just created an app which required persistent data, so used a local SharedObject. However discovered that if one person had the app open in two different places(eg. 2 tabs) the persistent data in one tab wasn't updating in the other tab. To remedy this I tried reloading the SharedObject(SharedObject.getLocal) every time I extracted a variable, and yet this SharedObject variable still wasn't updating.

Discovered that, strangely, the only way to update the SharedObject, is to first set it to null. Set it to null and then reload it forces an update.
