system settings reset when computer is restarted - related to beryl


I am running the latest version of beryl on (K)ubuntu 6.10. I have gotten beryl to work plenty of times in the past however, whenever I restart the desktop/monitor settings get reset.

The specific problem for beryl is that "enabled=false" will not disappear from my kdesktoprc, however all my other settings go bye bye too.

Code:
[Desktop Icons]
Preview=clipartthumbnail,cursorthumbnail,djvuthumbnail,ldifvcardthumbnail,exrthumbnail,fontthumbnail ,htmlthumbnail,imagethumbnail,kofficethumbnail,gsthumbnail,svgthumbnail,textthumbnail,webarchivethum bnail

[Desktop0]
CurrentWallpaper[$d]
CurrentWallpaperName=
Pattern=
Program=
Wallpaper=$HOME/.kde/share/wallpapers/stOrmblue--0
WallpaperList=

[FMSettings]
ShowFileTips=true
StandardFont=Tahoma,8,-1,5,50,0,0,0,0,0

[General]
Enabled=false
SetVRoot=false

[KFileDialog Settings]
Automatic Preview=true
Recent Files=$HOME/.kde/share/wallpapers/stOrmblue--0,$HOME/.kde/share/wallpapers/My Cool Desktop--0,$HOME/.kde/share/wallpapers/blue sun--0,$HOME/.kde/share/wallpapers/casualties.of.war--0,$HOME/.kde/share/wallpapers/BestOf:Unwetterhimmel--0,$HOME/.kde/share/wallpapers/Amarok logo--0,$HOME/.kde/share/wallpapers/Grey Matrix--0

The actual error beryl gives when it is starting is

Code:
**************************************************************
* Beryl system compatibility check *
**************************************************************

Detected xserver : AIGLX

Checking Display :0.0 ...

Checking for XComposite extension : passed (v0.3)
Checking for XDamage extension : passed
Checking for RandR extension : passed
Checking for XSync extension : passed

Checking Screen 0 ...

Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Root visual is not a GL visual
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
beryl: Root visual is not a GL visual
beryl: Failed to manage screen: 0
beryl: No manageable screens found on display :0.0


and when checking for direct rendering I get the following error here:

Code:
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".


While this all can be solved, every time I restart my computer (but not X) the entire process needs to be done all over again so that is the main issue.

Thanks,
tyr
