There's no indicator anywhere that some "settings" are per game, and others
are permanent....  Maybe the entire mechanism needs to be divided?

As far as savename, I wish it would default to my username, but instead it's
civgame.  I'm using it to set my username, and so I liked the fact that it
now stays the same between games.

Which old values?  From the saved file?  From a saved game?  Defaults?

There's definitely a problem I've reported elsewhere that the settings
current values are sent in the settings messages, and also sent in the
game.info message.  Any time you have something stored in two places,
there's some chance they will conflict....

That's a major packet re-design issue.  I'm working on it for 2.2.

There's no indicator anywhere that some "settings" are per server, or have
some level of access, so the client can only try and get an error message.

Again, a major packet and internal re-design issue.  Maybe someday.
