the error message is somewhat misleading and the help patch is wrong.
the syntax for justification is
"justify center|left|right [middle|top|bottom] [halfway|front|back]"
for alignment long the x- y- and z-axis.
(the docs does speaks of "center" for y-alignment too but this really 
should read "middle")
((i guess "center", "middle" and "halfway" should be made aliases to 
avoid confusion))

anyhow, with "discovering a bug" i mean, that even if you do 
justification along the y-axis, yo ustill get baseline-shifting.

i'll have a look at this.
