The correct behaviour!
Which is: A style which is basedon on another style should only display
the properties that are different from the basedon style in the
description part of the "modify styles" dialog.
The preview should always accurately represent how the styles look.
Changing the basedon style should change the appearance of the current
style as needed and the description of the current style should show just
the different properties between it and the basedon style.
Changing any properties of the current style (including the numbering
properties) should always affect the current style as users expect.
On unix the styles dialog was broken with regard to all these behaviours.
It is now fixed. Since the Unix dialog was broken badly but didn't get
brought to our attention with the urgency it should have, I hope the
dialog on other platforms isn't also badly broken.
