Is your project not being saved for some reason?  It shouldn't revert
like this, but should remember what it was set at (along w/ many other
things in the GUI).  Sending an error report from the Help menu with
error log may show some sort of failure to save the project.

Anyway, changing the default to "Project Files" sounds reasonable.
Also, using this tool on a single file can be useful 'cause it shows
all the matches in a list.

Yes, we know...

We need to implement something like that as a prerequisite for some
other capabilities we've got planned -- would be useful also to get out
of hot water when using global replace, although there the "save point"
may be defined somewhat differently.
