It shouldn't do that (and doesn't for me). Are you overwriting that
setting in your siteconfig.php?

Again, that's not what's supposed to happen. Please note, though, that
there are two options for the Advanced Editor now: The global setting in
the Configuration and the user's setting in My Account. The latter takes
precedence (obviously).

You shouldn't set things in the siteconfig.php that are also available
in the Configuration panel.

Settings in siteconfig.php overwrite those in the Configuration. That's
a feature, necessary for things like root_debug (when you have an error
that prevents you from logging in and changing the setting in the
Configuration). But it shouldn't be used in everyday use or it'll only
cause confusion.
