I'd be very unhappy with a system that changed default paths simply
because I'd accessed a file from an unusual directory and later done a
"Save settings". If I want a default path changed, I want to know that
I'm doing so, so I vote that the only way to change a default path is
to go to the appropriate place, edit the path being used, then save
settings so that it will remember that this has been done.

Now what could be useful would be:

At startup or anytime you do a save settings command , have gnubg save
the current settings as a reference. On exit, gnubg can optionally
warn you if the current settings differ from the reference, preferably
telling you what settings (or at least the general area
Analysis/Evaluation/Appearance where there are changes). 

I've been caught by forgetting to save changes once or twice and
wouldn't have minded a reminder before closing gnubg.
