programs won't remember settings
I recently formatted and re-installed Ubuntu 7.10, and for some reason, multiple programs now refuse to remember settings. The two I can think of offhand are Exaile and Deluge. In Exaile, the columns I set up (track, title, album, rating) constantly reset to default. In deluge, it's the default torrent folder. If I change it to a different folder, close the program, and restart... it's back to the default folder. I have checked logs and the programs are not crashing out or anything. Even manually altering settings files in my user folder does nothing. So I've come to the conclusion that this isn't a problem with the programs, because like I've said, it's more than one program, and it's always a similar problem. Certain options and settings REFUSE to save.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated, this is getting very annoying.
