When you adjust the properties of a running session using the "Change Settings" menu option, it might be nice to be able to save the adjusted settings back to the saved-session slot you loaded from, or to a new session slot.

This feature is one of our most requested, but is currently pending some design work:

SGT, 2004-12-28: Someone - I've sadly forgotten who - suggested that the simplest possible solution is not to automatically highlight the session you loaded, or enter its name in the session name box. Just provide the list and the Load/Save buttons, so that you can save over an explicitly named session. Then anyone who modifies the hostname and saves over the original slot has to do so explicitly and deliberately, ensuring that it's probably what they meant to do.

Therefore, I've now done this.
