Package: mousepad
Version: 0.4.0-3
Severity: normal

Hi, dear Mama Intainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

An attempt to change tabs & home/end preferences.

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

Open mousepad,
open the preferences panel,
change tabs to be spaces instead of tabulations,
change home/end from Disabled to Always,
close preferences,
close mousepad.

   * What was the outcome of this action?

Only the accel file is created into ~/.config/Mousepad,
no preferences file,
a reopen of mousepad confirmed that whatever change is made to it's
   it is systematically reset when closing the panel.

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

Being able to change and save mousepad preferences.
