Prereq data: Windows XP, version 1.1 of PChat Portable. Not installed as part of the PortableApps platform.
Just as the header explains. I can go into the settings page for the installer-provided X-Tray icon, change some settings around (such as disabling tray balloon notifications). However, once I exit the application and start it again, all X-Tray settings revert back to their defaults (i.e., balloon notifications are enabled again). If I replace the PA.c-modified X-Tray plugin with the original one (from the Sinister Developments site), data is saved as per normal.
It's a very fixable bug in the sense that you can easily replace the plugin, but two things come to mind.
1) It doesn't adhere to PChat's branding, which isn't that big a deal, really.
2) It's strange that the PA.c-provided X-Tray plugin would do this in the first place. How would changing the icons used break settings-savings functionality? (There's probably more changes I don't know about, though.)
Apologies if this has been brought up before; I'm a happy user of X-Chat Portable (the 2.8.6-1 pre-relase version!) and appreciate your hard work.
