Ahh, is this the old non-rolling release ISO you are using? I know I've
fixed several of those things in the rolling-release. Can you re-test
with this image?


I know I've fixed the delete issue, and possibly the create dataset
issue as well. FWIW, I just created a new user, and it made the dataset
properly, I logged in changed settings, rebooted and they stayed the
same at login. Then I deleted the user, and it removed the old dataset.
