There are two different places for settings:

   Menu bar > MudWalker > Settings...

   These apply everywhere in MudWalker if not overridden in a  
particular document. There has been one report of these not being  
saved properly; if this is your problem please let me know.

   Menu bar > File > Document Settings...

   This applies to each connection document. These will be saved with  
each document; if you're clicking "Don't Save" when you quit  
MudWalker, then that is why they're not being saved.

(There are also per-window settings, but there is no place to edit  
them directly.)

If you're still having trouble, tell me which of these you're doing  
so I can figure out what the problem is.

Most likely, the file now contains strange line breaks such as CR CR  
LF, which MudWalker would treat as two line breaks but many other  
clients won't.
