This sounds like a code bug, not a doc bug. I think that ij's
properties should all be prefixed with 'ij.' as described in the doc.
And the fact that a property with a different name, not prefixed with
'ij.', can override the behavior of the properly named property seems
really wrong to me.

Could you please file a code bug for this? I'll take a look at it shorty.
