Question dwb: can't save configurations

dynamic web browser: can't save settings page's configurations

I to dwb's settings page page and then change some configurations, I then enter into normal mode (Esc) and key in ":save" (':' is a command). dwb displays "configuration files saved". I then use the cursor and enter into keys tab then back to settings and I notice how dwb reset the configurations back to the default values. The only way I know to overcome this is the following workaround:
1) close dwb
2) Permissions: check that ~/.config/dwb/settings is rw for your current id, and that you are the owner.
3) manually edit values in the ~/.config/dwb/settings
4) save
5) restart dwb
My stats:
a@NP-NC110:~$ dwb --version
    This is : dwb
    Version : 2014.02.06
      Built : Feb  6 2014 20:51:53

a@NP-NC110:~$ ll ~/.config/dwb/setting*
-rw-rw-r-- 1 a a 3962  7 17 13:12 /home/a/.config/dwb/settings
a@NP-NC110:~$ whoami

Does anyone know a better solution?
