If there's anyway I can help, let me know.

Odd, I've just re-installed 0.55.2, and created a /etc/qt3/qtcurvestylerc with
just the following:
...and this works. If a user alters their settings, then all 'appearance'
settings are saved - regardless of if they differ to the defaults. So, if you
already have a $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/qtcurvestylerc that sets toolbarAppearance
then this will override the default. This is the only reason I can see why
you would think the defaults are not being read correctly.

Yes, and no. The problem I have with plastik and polyester, is that the
default button always appears smaller - due to the light grey border being
drawn outside of the button. I did add a 'tint' option to later releases (and
its now the default), so that the default button is tinted with the highlight
colour - this idea I stole from polyester.

Glad you like it.
