> This fails for me too, but only if I keep the property name you assigned. If I change the property to "cY" it works as expected. I'm not sure why, but I'd guess the engine is using "y" for something. Since I always preface my custom properties with "c", I haven't run into this before, but I think you should probably bug-report it. It's an odd one.

Related remark: I remember I had sometime (not systematically) problems when giving one letter names to variables or parameters (e.g. a,b or x,y, which are so standart, in regression for example), but I was too lazy to digg deep in this question, it was simpler to change the name of the variable... but it IS some hidden pitfall somewhere.
