and there's a load of changes to the internal handling in the 5.7 betas to try to resolve the issue (generating backups of the files, lessening when the files are updated, etc).

if it was something that consistently happened then it would be simple to fix, but as it isn't, then that is one of the main reasons it's not been fixed. though how you can tell something is fixed if you cannot replicate it despite potential fixes i don't know, as to fix something, you need to know what the cause of the issue is.

i appreciate that it's not good if settings files are getting reset / mangled but as per my points above, unless there is a consistent way to replicate the issue, all i can do is try to counteract the likely causes and see how that affects things.
