Several of my system settings revert to their defaults no sooner than I click the 'Close' button after setting them. One in particular, the Touchpad Sensitivity setting does this constantly, setting itself for higher sensitivity regardless of what I choose for it. Also, I've changed several passwords only to have them revert to the former password. I've looked everywhere I could think of in user forums but can't find anything about these settings. They change themselves often enough that I've dug my Windows CD out in order to dump Ubuntu and go back to Windows, but decided to try to get an answer here first. This isn't just annoying, it limits my productivity because between any two functions, I have to constantly reset the touchpad, or try to remember what password was used prior to change.
Thank you for your help.
I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.
