The board design (board preferences screen) not being saved when you hit
OK has been an annoyance for a while. I finally fixed it in the latest
build. From the ChangeLog:

2013-06-13  Michael Petch  <address@hidden>

        * gtkprefs.c: Save board preferences when clicking "OK"
        on the board appearance configuration dialog.

There is a work around though. You can manually save settings with a
trick. Go to the "View" menu, select "Panels>" and select "Message". In
the bottom right of the main GNUBG Window there is a command box that
will appear. You can type this into it after you exit the board
preferences screen:

save settings

The next time you Launch GNUBG those changes should be present.

The Next build with this fix will likely be this week, Sunday at the latest.
