So, the bug is unfortunately still there, but is only reproducible when
the package is built with no optimization.  Weird...

Since the default is -O2, I think it is OK to upload it now.  Here's an
updated patch -- the new thing is migrating the settings for existing
users.  One annoyance is that -[GeneralPreference _initDefaults] is
called at least three times during initialization, and because of the
modal dialog the user has to press the button thrice :-(  I couldn't
find a way to circumvent this.

I'd appreciate a review and eventually testing; thanks.
