Hi David,

It appears that the menu system calls the settings_save() function in
settings.c when an item is changed, which saves the user settings
struct. I think all you'd have to do is call this function (be sure to
#include settings.h) whenever your value changes. Give it a try
anyway. While you're at it, fix the above bug too. :)
