Sorry. I picked an instrument and a system effect, then used the File > 
Save State option. Then I closed Yoshimi and clicked Discard on the 
option to Save or Discard state. Then I looked in my home folder (with 
view hidden files on) and found no .yoshimi folder whatever.

Then I tried starting yoshimi with the "-S" option, and it strategically 

Then I started it again, picked instrument and effect. Closed Yoshimi 
and had it save state - and there was the .yoshimi folder!

So I tried starting Yoshimi from command line with the -S parameter, and 
it strategically retreats. Because now there's no 
~/.yoshimi/yoshimi.state or even a folder to contain it.

Do newer versions of Yoshimi handle this better, such as provide a menu 
option of loading settings?
