The only time Auto-bookmarking would occur is when the off key is
pressed. One thing it might be is if the settings are being saved
at periodic intervals. I write the auto-bookmark/auto-load settings
to a file within the settings_save function. If that's being called
by another function at some interval, then that might be what's causing
the disk access. I'd prefer to save to memory, but I never got a
response to my queries on which addresses to use. I can hack the
code a little bit and see if that's what is happening.
