@property decorator doesn't raise exceptions

I've encountered a problem which is making debugging less obvious than
it should be. The @property decorator doesn't always raise exceptions.
It seems like it is bound to the class but ignored when called. I can
see the attribute using dir(self.__class__) on an instance, but when
called, python enters __getattr__. If I correct the bug, the attribute
calls work as expected and do not call __getattr__.

I can't seem to make a simple repro. Can anyone offer any clues as to
what might cause this so I can try to prove it?
