# Re: Minor bug with dialog settings

An 'update' has restored the directory as expected. It seems that I
can't now reproduce what I was experiencing earlier with the revert
attempt, so there was obviously another factor involved that I didn't
spot. If I can reproduce it again I'll post to the list again with
more details.
