It's actually more complex than that. For some words the PrP/gerund is
actually an agentive noun - whether this particular form means "act of
doing" or "one who does" is entirely lexical. There are also two different
forms for the affix, -on or -ont. Which is used is again lexical, and
doesn't correlate to what the meaning is.
In case you're wondering why I designed something that odd, it originally
happened by accident and I decided to keep it.
