Actually, it turns out the local variable is a property table which is 
gradually copied into the one held in the instance variable.  When I 
tried assigning directly to the instance variable in that location, I 
got an error when it tried to add child elements which already existed.

The real problem is probably that the recursive processProperties() 
method only processes the children and below.  That method *does* 
manually set in the class ID for the directory nodes, it's only the root 
which doesn't get it set (which is where it is almost always needed.)

I suppose a slightly better solution than my workaround would be having 
processProperties() start from the root.  But the problem is, the 
PropertyTable() constructor automatically adds the root node all by 
itself, so it would need a setRoot() method perhaps.

Anyway, I've put this in Bugzilla, Bug 39056, with a nice workaround patch.
