Some advances.

I think I have solved/bypassed? this by going to a "tty" and editing
my user's file from there (using nano editor).

After restarting the computer I can see that the "ini" file of my
current user is keeping the saved settings so I think this issue could
come from something regarding "sessions" but sure I have never seen
that behavior before :-)

I can run any further tests if you want me to check anything within my
Lenny installation, but you can also close this bug and mark it as you
estimate convenient.

Thanks for all.
