Dizhi reported on the developer list:

In brief, the problem I see is that Config::Set function may fail to set an
attribute if 1) its name-space path uses a string defined by Names::Add and
2) Config::Set is called after any object aggregation (e.g.,
InternetStackHelper::Install() function).

How to reproduce this problem can be found  in the "/*Description*/"
section of my first Email

My first Email explained the root cause of this bug and proposed a solution
as well.

(ISI mailman archives were rebuilt recently and old links don't work).

Anyway, I am going to try to move this along and form a patch from Dizhi's email.
