Displaying Properties Fails If Object Key Begins Numerically (as set with key prefix option).

For example if the key of an object is 123Object1:

%PropertyValue[%object%,ReadText]% displays correctly.

%object%.ReadText displays 123Object1.ReadText

Obviously the simplest solution is not to have keys start with a number, however this issue does highlight differences between the old and new styles of displaying property values.

Ah, ok. I think I'll prevent keys being able to have those as a prefix.

This problem is more general. So e.g. %object%.Parent.Takefix.sum does not work if the %object%-key starts with a number, otherwise it will.
