Studio 2011: Custom file types disappear between reboots, why?

Hello all,

I don't understand why this happens, but every time I have to reboot my Windows 7 laptop, all of the custom file types I've set up are gone and I have to re-import them. And yes, these are the "top level" settings under Tools: Options. No projects/files are open at all.

I can't believe that this would be the normal behavior on the part of the program. Is this info stored in one's user profile? If so, why would Studio 2011 not re-load the last user profile by default? The only thing I can think of is that somehow the program isn't being permitted to write the user profile to a particular location, and then when it starts up after a reboot it just loads the default configuration.

Paul, I emailed you about this today as well, BTW.
