The red stroke will only show if you remove the stroke from the parent
object. You will have to do this from the "style" parameter in the XML
of the parent, not from the dialog. If you set the stroke to "X" from
the dialog, then the XML becomes "stroke:none" which is inherited by
both children, overwriting the red stroke. If you remove "stroke:black"
from the parent, you get to see the red stroke in the child.
In my opinion, this is another area where the GUI is being a bit
uninformative, but I'm not sure how all this could be shown without
confusing the user further.

I am trying to create a set of cloned objects all of which have the

According to all available documentation, the 'Unset color' means that
the fill or stroke color will be inherited and this seems to work
perfectly. However, if one of cloned objects is set to a specific
color nothing appears to happen. The object colors shown on the
status bar seem to show the correct information: fill is 'unset',
stroke is red. The XML looks correct too: xlink:href to the 'parent'
object and 'style' containing 'stroke:red'.
Have I missed something?
