Wow, I've been seeing issues with Opera & preferences since I went to 6.11;
adding this comment to the adprefs.ini now lets me actually set preferences
which Opera keeps across more than the current invocation.

Other than this, and the occasional crash (sees to be moreso when I load
up on windows as this is a low-memory machine), opera has been working
fairly well for me.

Thanks for the hint!
