1. "Ok" sets the parameters only for the current session and won't

"Ok" is equivalent to "save" if "auto save setup" is set.

... and if you exit from mc rather than e.g. close the xterm window.
And if you don't have another mc running that would overwrite those
settings if you exit from it properly.

I think that "auto save setup" is something that cannot be implemented
reliably in mc unless you make "Ok" work exactly like "Save" and save
changes immediately.

I think this is a reasonable approch. If we go that way we can safely
remove "Save setup" and auto_save_setup.

That means that you would not be able to modify some options w/o saving
them (and thus, affect all further instances)?

Hmm... This is a strong indication that those options do not belong to the
Options menu, IMO.

If I'm not wrong there are options set outside from the Options menu/dialogs
that get saved, like user mini status in listing mode, I didn't feel
uncomfortable w/ that. Anyway, maybe the simple way would be the best, and
would be smth like only keeping a "Save options" menu entry that users must
explicitely use. I must admit that I'm a little bit lost now in the
discussion.. ;-)
