And now you are making assumptions. The flag only alters the behaviour by
resulting in a crash when trying to read or write the properties... This
probably is the result of not using the macros every other tool uses to
register it's properties.

And if you had read the followups on this (partially in the cited bug reports)
you would have noticed that I started to work with the developers to fix the
problems - part of the patches originate from me.
My whole rant here was the result of the lack of feedback to those bug
reports, which since has been cleared as a bad timing because of the holiday
