I tried that hoping that it would clear up my problems, but it
didn't. :( I think that is what is happening anyway the first time I
load the build. Since the version number stored in my recorder
doesn't match the version number the software is expecting, it throws
out all the stored settings and reverts to the default values. But my
interpretation of the code is that the "Graphic" display is the
default value!

Yeah. That's exactly what is happening here. After I first install
the new build, the contrast is wrong (goes back to default settings)
and I can fix it and it stays fixed. But some of the settings that I
change (The ones we have both mentioned for example) just plain don't

I'm still pouring over the code to see if I can see what's going wrong
here. I'll let you know if I figure out what the problem is (and help
in this matter is greatly appreciated if you have any insight).
