Hi Dick,

Based on the way you worded what you said, I am not exactly sure we are
speaking of the same behavior.

I agree that what I am seeing is a design issue, not a bug.  But to a
user it has six legs and runs around on the floor.  ;-)

What I want is that type of setting to "default" to what I last used.
So, yes, I want it to do the same action every time I do that task,
until I tell it to do a different action.

What it is doing now IS remembering a setting (always the same one no
matter what I do) -- what it is remembering happens to be _never_ what I
want to do.  :-(

It seems to me to be more useful to remember what the user does rather
than some setting that the user never uses.

Imagine if you had to sharpen a pencil EVERY time you wanted to use it.
And every time you set it back down on the desk the point completely
disappeared.  ;-)
