Changes in sessiondata not recognized/saved (updated!)

If you alter sessiondata, the programm normally asks you, if you want to save them. It looks like that it doesn't do that, if the changes are only casesensitive.

What I have done: Altered sourcepath from "P:\foo" to "P:\FOO" and then changed to another session -> nothing happened and next time sourcepath is again "P:\foo" .
When e.g. altering sourcepath from "P:\foo" to "P:\bar" and then changing to another session -> program asks if I want to save the changes.

Well, normally on Windows file name case does not matter, so all comparisons are case insensitive...

I only came over it because I changed a drive letter from lower case to upper case (just for a uniform appearance). And if there are no cases where case is important this surely isn't a real bug :wink:.

Changes in sessiondata not saved

If the program asks you to save the changed data in the situation described above - does it save it to disk (ini-file) or only to memory?

I'm asking because I changed a lot of things, everytime clicking on "Yes" when asked to save. Then windows decided to stop working and after a restart all my changes where lost. If the question only means that the program "remembers" the changes in memory, leaving it to the user to save it to disk, there should be used another wording. But I think it would be better to really save the changes to disk, just as if the user explicitely clicks on the save-button.
