I'm sorry, but I'm german and unfortunately I don't speak french.

That's OK.

I think that's the point. Because of global_settings.fade_on_stop is a bool
var, you should use bool test_bool(char* string, bool* variable) instead.
If _string_ is '1' or '0' then the function returns true (otherwise it's
false) and _variable_ is _true_ or _false_. I had implemented in this way to make
sure we don't load invalid values from cfg file to the global_setting
variables. If the test_bool or test_int function returns false, the value should be
set to it's default.

global_settings.autocreatebookmark has a range of 0 to 2? So if you change
the max parameter to 2 it should work. The test_int function returns true if
value is withhin the range thats given through the min and max parameters. The
step is optional (0 is the same as 1) . This is used e.g. to test the
_bidir_limit_ setting. In case the function returns true, you can do what you wan't
with _variable_.

I hope that was helpful for you. Are you planning to merge
If you do so, please release a patch. Thank you:)
