And how frequent is that?
While testing, I swap between versions all the time, and the few changes
can be slightly annoying, but not critical.
Anyway, you've stated a (previously undocumented) rationale, and it
conflicts with the reporter's desire that his options always be saved as
soon as he makes the changes. That's what we all needed to know....
So, here's a different idea: in addition to the Cancel and OK buttons on
the various options/settings dialogs, add a Save button. I'm not good at
GTK2 programming, but it looks relatively easy.
