Make your settings changes and then click on "Default Settings" under "Load, save or delete a stored session" (This is in the "Session" category) to select it. Then click "Save."
I'm often bitten by that too.
To make it work the way you expect, try doing it this way:
To change the default settings, just do the same, but selecting the "Default Settings" entry on the "Saved Sessions" list.
Hope that helps
: yeah, the UI is really not clear on how you're supposed to do it
