This has a few quarks myself.  And nobody is perfect, its something I live with but here is my experience...

These settings only pertain to "new sessions".  These must be set with "no" sessions active.  Aslo, after saving the default session.. quit the program and restart it to make sure its saved.  Then go and make all your sessions...

Same concept.  if you have an existing connection you don't want to go and re-do for whatever reasons.. Just edit the settings, save it manually. close the session... re-open it..  (do not quit-save, sometimes it doesn't save, so my experience from I think a prior version) I haven't had to make a new session recently.
