If you add some print statements you can see what's happening, but not why - 
haven't figured that out yet.

In Preferences.__init__(), the value is False after both the addItemBool and 
readConfig() calls. But on return from the Preferences() call in the main 
window __init__, the value is True. Obviously , that's not right.

Otherwise, I'm still looking into it.
