Sorry, mixing things up with the inherited indent properties. Should have
looked at the sample, of course...

OK, now I see it. The SpaceProperty instance is re-used/shared between the
blocks, due to the value of inherit, but when the additional component is
specified on the fourth block, it also sets the component for all the other
blocks. Specifying a value other than inherit, or specifying it for the
individual components, generates a separate instance, so there are no
side-effects. SpaceProperty is one type that is not cached yet, so even
identical property specs will yield separate instances (unless inheritance of
the base property is used, obviously).

Not sure how easy it would be to fix this behavior, yet. Could be as simple as
modifying the behavior in PropertyList.findBaseProperty() to conditionally
duplicate the instance...
