Just had another look. Suspicion confirmed, it seems.

see: PropertyList.getInherited()

if (isInherited(...)) { etc.

and start-indent is inherited, so this will always return the  
computed value of the parent in that calculation.

One way around this would be to exclude the inherited value of start- 
indent if start-indent is specified on the FO.
That would make it:
*either* inherited *or* explicit, and not explicit *minus* inherited...?

Correct interpretation?
