isatty will get reset everytime the app ones, it's not really a user
configurable option.

networkSetup doesn't get saved intentionally, see bz # 169881

It just shows up in the nox configure stuff because nox configure is lame. I
say, not a blocker, this isn't new behaviour.
Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2006-01-18 12:57:52 EST
I'm taking this one off the blocker list, it's lame but it doesn't really break
anything and is old behaviour
