Oh dear. Is the update smart enough to not update non-scrolling, non-changing lines?
The settings code may or may not take longer; the salient point is the settings code really isn't needed except for two of the <however many settings there are now>. The other salient point is that we swouldn't need to do this at all if we could do a clean shutdown that saved settings.
