Quassel intermittently forgets settings
Every now and then, when I start Quassel up, all settings are missing.
I need to re-create my highlight settings, add the server ip, and such.
It looks like the quasselclient.conf file just goes missing and a new one is created with default settings.
Gentoo Linux, KDE 4.7.0.

I could possibly be related to forcing Quassel to close with "systemctl --force reboot", rather than closing Quassel itself first. Not sure about this though.
Still intermittently happens in KDE 4.7.3 and with Quassel 0.7.3.
I would update the version number on the issue, but I'm not really familiar enough with redmine, I can't seem to figure out how to do it.

I have the same issue on Archlinux with Quassel (client only setup) 0.9.2 dist-748fa5c.
This bug is not related to the desktop environment use, it affects me when I'm using xfce4 as well as when I'm using i3.
I also encountered this bug under Debian wheezy on powerpc with Quassel 0.8.0.
It seems as if the config file gets reset to defaults a soon as Quassel is killed with sigterm instead of exited properly.

Happened to me for 2nd time now with latest Quassel
KDE izstrādes platforma: 4.14.1
Quassel IRC: v0.10.0 (dist-575f27e)
I noticed that both times it could have been caused by full /var partition but still weird that it overwrote config.
or mabye it was becuase /home partition was full too

This might have been a bug in Qt which is now fixed as of Qt 5.4.0: https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-21739
Can anyone replicate this on Quassel v0.11 linked against Qt 5.4.0 or newer?
FWIW I've been using Quassel built with Qt5 since I made that comment and have never encountered this issue, despite encountering it many times before that.
