I was just looking at the "Various" preferences GUI, I meant to use 
yes/no/true/false consistently. In the config file it should be 'true' 
or 'false' for boolean settings. I guess if you put 'no' it will fail to 
parse it and use 'false', but if you use the GUI it will always put the 
right value in the config file.
