Posting about this has provoked me to look at it more...and it actually 
looks a little bit more subtle than I thought.

The particular settings that were being lost and reverted back to 
factory state are ones that I made which are only visible when "submix 
view" is activated.  I had been saving my preset files with submix view 
turned off, thinking that because the purpose of a preset file is to 
store the entire state of the mixer, it really shouldn't matter if my 
submixes are actually displayed in the app window at the time I create 
the file.

After a little more investigation, it looks like it actually will save 
my submix...provided I'm looking right at it when I save my config file! 
I'm going to keep experimenting with it to see if it isn't something 
I've missed, but at this point, it looks like a bug in which the app is 
depending too much on the state of the GUI to know what the mixer is 
really doing when it saves preset files.
