Ouch, the SfxItemPool hit you ;-)

You can't simply add a property without adjusting the corresponding item
pool and its defaults. I think for the EditEngine and Draw case that's
in editeng/source/editeng/eerdll.cxx GlobalEditData::GetDefItems(),
though I don't know if nowadays it's sufficient to adapt just that place
and editeng/inc/editeng/eeitem.hxx, maybe someone familiar with Draw can
shed some light.

Each core attribute/property is represented by a SfxPoolItem,
EE_PARA_NUMBULLET and so on are so-called Which-IDs, the ID an item has
in an SfxItemPool. For each item the pool knows a default value, shared
across all SfxItemSet instances that use the same pool, so only
differing values need to be stored. The pool is of a fixed map size and
anything unknown leads to unpredictable behavior and crashes at best.

Bjoern can sing a song about that ;-)
