I've got a bug report about something similar... the glx2 script editor 
preferences stack loads fine for every LC version *execpt* 6.7.8, and 
only on OSX. It's a mystery to me.

Not if it's working for you. I've got a bug report pending about 
*something* in the preferences file that's incompatible between LC7 and 
LC8, and it seems to be inherited from the earlier prefs file. The 
annoying thing is that LC8 imports the bad setting on launch, not just 
on installation.
