With latest snapshot, I can not save the configuration file(nvda.ini) with Japanese Windows.
Steps to Reproduce
Download the latest snapshot from NVDA Snapshot page(I tried with both installer and zip file).
Run the NVDA and change synthesizer from eSpeak to SAPI4 Active voice.
Press Nvda+Ctrl+C or use NVDA menu to save settings.
I got a message "Could not save configuration - probably read only file system". And if I restart NVDA, it was started with eSpeak.
But, if I work with source code of NVDA, this problem doesn't happen.
Answers to Jamie's questions
What revision of NVDA is this?
I tested with nvda_snapshot_trunk-r2136.
Are you testing with official pre-built snapshots?
Yes. It was from official snapshot page.
What operating system(s)?
I tested with 3 Windows XP with SP3 installed machines and 1 Windows Vista with SP1 installed machine. All of them are Japanese version.
Now, I am asking NVDA Japanese translate team to test this problem with their machines. When I get messages from them, I'll report them.
Is NVDA running as a normal user or as administrator?
I tested with administrator users.
Does this happen for other Japanese users also?
Yes. My coworkers machine also had same problem. But, I am still correcting the data from testers.
Does this work properly for you in earlier versions of NVDA?
In my computer, I have division2057 and I couldn't find problem like this with 2057.

Ack. It seems that my suspicion was right, but my fix didn't quite fix the entire problem. I know what needs to be done, but it is a litle more complicated than initially suspected.
Milestone changed from 0.6 to 0.6p2

Hopefully fixed by r2206. Please tst and report. Note that this requires MiscellaneousDependencies 2008-07-09-01. Also, please remove config/*.pyc to be sure. This will be in snapshots from r2206.
