[Bug-gnubg] Please help me with a quite nagging problem with GNUB

Each time I start a new set of 7 games, I try to enter, and make my settings stick (as below in top screen shot). Yet almost each time, my settings ("casual play", "intermediate"), whatever I enter, after I enter my choice, GNUB stays at my choice ("casual play", but JB almost always reverts to ("expert").  Plus, it seems the only way I can change JB, is to click "GNU Backgammon" temporarily to make make "Human" become "GNU Backgammon, which un-greys "casual play" as seen below.  I then change "Expert" to "casual play", re-click JB to "Human" to lock in "casual play".  Yet it far to often doesn't stick, and I have to do it over and over until GNUB allows "casual play"

As shown in the below screen shot of a finished game, with top part of game stats shown below (the balance of the game stats shown is the last screen shot) it shows how incredibly aggressive GNUB can be until it wins.  Note ALL my checkers piled in my Home board and the next board, while all GNUB's are off the board!!

Is there any way I can eliminate the quite often huge gain in aggression on either GNUB's OR JBs part in the closing moments of a game -- Many, many doubles, repeatedly rolling the exact roll to repeatedly nail just the right checker to do max damage, along with never allowing any of opponent's checkers on the bar to get in, was too often by giving me lots of dice for blocked points, and as GNUB uncovers points, repeatedly setting my rolls at progressively lower and lower and often never getting at all - game over as illustrated above!

Thanks for your time!
