To the developers,

This is a very common mistake, caused because most Windows programs retain the settings when OK is pressed. I don't know the default behaviour on Linux or Macs, but I think gnubg would be more user friendly if it saved settings by default.

I don't like this, at least not if there are only OK and Cancel choices like now. That would mean you cannot change anything just temporarily. The configuration file is clobbered every time and you have to undo the changes explicitely.

If there were three choices : Apply, Apply & Save and Cancel, it would be fine with me (especially if Apply is the default and Save saves just the parameters from the current tab, not all of them).

Aren't there some design guidelines in the Gnome documentation about these kind of things ?
