The file is .civclientrc, and saving game (=server) settings in it is
somewhat suprising. And it is only these two that are saved AFAICS. savename
shouldn't be saved, because I (at least) change the game name when I start a
new game. saveturns can be useful to save in there.

Start a new game, choose nation, change server options, *then* start game,
then go to server options in file menue, and you see that the value you've
previously set for the savename is not there.

On a remote server, I'm usually nor allowed to set save options
