I had separate preferences filled for all possible locations (default/home/work/school).
Now separate preferences for home deleted (I didn't do that by myself) and "Add separate prefs for home" link active again.

Just report this bug (?)

Do you use an Account Manager? Those are capable of doing that, too.

No.
Only BOINC manager itself and BOINC view time to time.

Same happened for me... again! 3rd or 4th time all but default are deleted :( However I do use BAM for most of my computers, so I'll take a look there, but why would BAM delete specific SETI@home prefs? Since I can't enter any specific project preferences there, that doesn't make sense...

(Too late to edit former post)
The one specific project thing BAM can change is 'Resource share'. And when I hit update-button on BAM, home/work/school-'project specific' settings gets deleted. I'll see if Willy can change that...

Maybe you must define those venues at BAM!. I know that it's possible, but I don't know if it would change this behaviour.

Yes, I have them defined there. That is "Computing preferences" here. Those are ok. When I update Projects resource share there, venues here in "SETI@home preferences" (and on other projects) are removed :( So my problem is a problem with BAM, not with SETI ;) That doesn't explain Raistmer's problem...
