I don't know about this, Jan. This is an example of the IDE getting "in
the way" for our projects, and there should be a way to have our cake
and eat it too. For example, if the preferences applied only when you
created object with the tool palette and not from script, we would have
the best of both worlds. So I think it's worthy of being "bugged" (but
certainly has a low severity).

Just my $0.02,
