When the "Use currently saved settings on the logon and other secure screens" button is pressed, NVDA copies the entire user configuration to the system config, including plugins and drivers. This has security implications for users who might not think about what untrusted plugins or drivers they have in their configuration. There are a few possible solutions:
Marking as minor because this does require admin privs, so it's fair to expect the user to be a little careful.

Solution: display a warning dialog when the button is pressed only if there are user provided drivers or plugins.

Fixed in 7bac8e6. When the user presses the button to copy user settings to the system profile, they are now asked if they still wish to do this, if custom plugins are detected.
