Firewall port 5222 overwrite

Description of problem:
Not all the port changes done with the GUI are picked back up by the GUI on subsequent edits. The overwrite then blows the omitted ports away. For whatever reason, the GUI refuses to recognize 5222 when you reopen it for edit. It's like it's not there and when you hit OK, it isn't. It gets overridden and thus blocked.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable firewall from GUI Security Level Configuration
2. Enable https and SSL (although this is irrelevant).
3. Select other ports
4. Add 5222 and perhaps others like 5901 for example.
6. Reenter firewall GUI "security level configuration"
7. Note port 5222 is no longer there. If you do nothing and exit. The config is overlaid and port 5222 no longer exists and is subsequently blocked.
8. The only workaround is to enter 5222 as an added other port each time you enter the GUI.
Reenter firewall GUI "security level configuration".
Note port 5222 is no longer there. If you do nothing and exit. The config is overlaid and port 5222 no longer exists and is subsequently blocked.
The port should not disappear it should remain active until you remove it.
This is fixed in 1.6.16-3, which was released as an update to FC5.
