With qgis 2.0 on windows and 2.2 on openbsd, when choosing the ellipsoid for the measure tool sometimes it's not properly saved/applied.

After enabling on the fly reprojection for the project, if i choose 'IAG GRS 1980' in the ellipsoid list for the measure tool, the value saved in the .qgs file is:

     <Ellipsoid type="QString">IGNF:ELG037</Ellipsoid>

and if i reopen the project properties, the shown/selected ellipsoid is Clarke 1866.

It seems to work fine for 'GRS 1980(IUGG, 1980)' ellipsoid, or Galatea2000, or Everest 1930:

            <Ellipsoid type="QString">evrst30</Ellipsoid>

Seems broken the same way for 'IAG GRS 1967', the saved xml is:

            <Ellipsoid type="QString">IGNF:ELG108</Ellipsoid>

And it comes back to Clarke 1866 if i reopen the project properties dialog.

Maybe mismatching key/values entries in the ellipsoid lists ?
