Configuration applied via daemon.json or in the docker for windows => settings => Daemon will be applied to docker

After changing settings and clicking apply, docker restarts but the new settings are not applied. If i create a daemon.json file in the %programdata%\docker\config directory it is removed when I restart the service.

Thanks Simon. I installed the latest dev version and it appears to be working with the daemon.json file now: Server Version: 17.06.0-dev
