You misunderstand me (and the OP, i think). It's not a problem of 
understanding, it's a simple type error or a "false remember" (or a 
"Flüchtigkeitsfehler" in German, i don't know a translation).
Programmers sometimes make simple mistakes ;-)

from the OP:

if object.isGreen:
        do something...
PyChecker could (optional?) warn in such cases if isGreen is a function.

Gruß - regards Klaus :-)
