Looks like a bug to me.  The two Param's share the param::u.data member,
so once both are set changes to one are reflected in the other.
However, they are both initialized with PM_UNSET.  Presumably, setting
either doesn't remove the PM_UNSET flag from the other, and then the
presence of PM_UNSET causes the value not to be used, even though it's
