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.

It just occurred to me that the ':' that is in the (IGNF:ELG...) acronyms is used to find the values in the
I tried changing the IGNF: acronyms to using an underscore in place of the colon -- this works to retrieve and display the selected ellipsoid.
