In Project Properties, General, Ellipsoid choosing certain ellipsoids appear changed to a different one when Project Properties is opened again.

example: choose 'WGS84' (note there is no space in the name); on opening Project Properties after OK to the selection, the ellipsoid shown is Clarke 1866, not the one that was selected.
However, the ellipsoid selected is saved to the project file.

I noticed that the stored (in project file) ellipsoid value is one of the IGNF:ELG... (acronym in tbl_ellipsoid in the srs.db) which apparently aren't recognized by Project Properties when reading the stored value.

I just noticed some previous reports of a similar issue #9767, #10392 when I searched again (missed the closed tickets).

It just occurred to me that the ':' that is in the (IGNF:ELG...) acronyms is used to find the values in the Parameters: choice.

I tried changing the IGNF: acronyms to using an underscore in place of the colon -- this works to retrieve and display the selected ellipsoid.
