Default Restoring SMS messages on fresh install

I tried installing Dirty Unicorn ROM last night, and had a couple fc's, but nothing major. However, when I tried using Titanium Backup to restore my SMS messages and call log, it asked to set Titanium Backup as default messaging app. I think this is a new thing with KK ROMS, but once it did that, every time I tried opening up my regular SMS app, it would force close.

I eventually just gave up and restored my nandroid of the Sense 5 ROM I got from Captain's RUU thread.

I guess my question is, (for those of you who do try to keep your messages between ROM Installs) how do you do it? I think I'm doing something wrong.

I've successfully used SMS Backup & Restore to accomplish this when moving between versions of CM. You should be able to set the default SMS app back to your original SMS app after restoring the messages. There is no need to leave Titanium as the SMS app after the messages have been restored.
