Synopsis: Value of ISE_PRECOMP behaves like a sub-atomic particle (seriously)

In the world of quantum physics, looking at something, changes it. If I inspect the value of ISE_PRECOMP within EiffelStudio (on Linux) by typing 


in the console command input, I don't expect it to disappear, but this is precisely what is happening. If I relaunch EiffelStudio and repeat the same command again, the value of ISE_PRECOMP no longer exists.

The interesting thing about this bug is: it occurs across platforms! I tried this in the Windows version and the exact same thing happened. The first time I entered


I got the expected value in Document/Eiffel User Files

I relaunched EiffelStudio, and just like in Linux the value of ISE_PRECOMP was no longer there when I tried to echo the value again.
