I just wanted to confirm that I've seen this, too. Whenever I don't
close Claws manually before shutdown/logout/etc, it sometimes starts up
with some of my settings missing. It's not consistent, though. This
also sometimes happens even though no settings were changed while Claws
was running. Should this possibly be considered a bug?
