I had a similar problem. Rev wouldn't save my prefs until I quit. WHich is
a major time waste if you have more than one stack opened. Also if RR happened
to crash, I'd loose my prefs.

I just modified their code to my liking... There's a bugzilla for it if you
want the mod. it's 2097. I would suggest doing the same thing... Of course
for the new users it's another problem...
