Description Carsten Lohrke 2006-05-18 00:35:07 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.2)
Installed from:    Compiled From Sources

When I close the KDE session without explicitly closing KMail before, the formatting option change doesn't get stored - and I do run a KMail with all the latest config related code changes aplied to the 3.5 branch.
Comment 1 Ingo Klöcker 2006-05-18 10:51:30 UTC
Comment for the developers: When closing the composer window the setting is stored via KConfigXT by calling 
  GlobalSettings::self()->setUseHtmlMarkup( mHtmlMarkup );
in KMComposeWin::writeConfig() which is called by ~KMComposeWin.

And in KMKernel::~KMKernel() we call GlobalSettings::self()->writeConfig();

So I have no idea why the changed setting isn't stored when the session is closed unless KMail is killed before ~KMKernel() is called.

Carsten, please try whether adding
to the end of KMComposeWin::writeConfig() in kmcomposewin.cpp solves the problem.

Adding the line fixed it.
