It does say when you change the history setting in Options, that a restart
is necessary.  Are you restarting it when it prompts, after changing back to

The third one is not checked.

When I select "Never remember history", it does not prompt for restart.
If I restart manually, the setting is reverted to "Use custom settings
for history".
