It seems to me that there may be two different symptoms:

1) Users don't exit Claws Mail cleanly before shutting down or
rebooting, and in turn the latest changes to the preferences are not
saved. This would be because you need to quit the program to save the
config changes.

2) Users start Claws Mail and find that it sometimes resets the
previously saved preferences (or just some parts of it) to defaults.
