I have just tried the trunk and inded it works without vout restart. I
guess this means that the next release will have the fix, hopefully in
a not to distant future. Thanks. Will this be in 1.1.3 or will it only
be slated for 1.2.0?

Personnaly i'd rather not! :-) I can if you insist, but I'd rather let
you work on more important things. This is so minor, fixed in the next
release and I am probably the only one who will ever have tried to use
both the preference and the 'Adjustement and Effects' dialog at the
same time. But let me know if you still want to work on this and I'll
open a ticket.
