MBA, 10.7.3, 4Gb, 1.7GHz i5
QS ß64 (3915)

Option to show QS in Dock is greyed out (unchecked) on first launch but it shows in Dock. However, I am able to have it also show in menubar. Despite restarts of OS, clearing of QS preferences, perm rebuilds, QS icon remains in Dock (and in menubar, where it is desired). Seems to be no way to have it remove itself from the Dock.

It sounds like you're running QS as a non-admin-user. If so, this is a duplicate of issue #686. We are aware of it and are working on it. Therefore, I'll close this one.
If you are running as an admin-user, feel free to reopen.

Actually, I am logged in as Admin. Moreover, when set to start QS at boot, QS also launches Safari to its default start window. Safari is not set to launch in Login items.

Hmmm,

Apparently I don't have permission to re-open?

Ok, then you're right, it seems to be a different issue. The "Show Icon in Dock" option should not be grayed out. I still believe it's related to the other issue. But maybe that's not related to not being an admin. We'll figure it out.
Thank you for reporting it.

Ok, that at least is a known issue: #680

It may be OS perm-related. Its a new MBA running the shipping install of the OS. However, I'm getting odd access issues here and there to folders (auth required to remove an item from Utilities for example), or a copied folder of app docs to Applications cannot thereafter be re-named, despite perm rebuild, re-boot, etc. May very well re-install from Recovery. Perhaps in my issue with QS, it cannot write a pref somewhere because perms are farked in the OS?

The visibility of the 'Show Icon in Dock' setting has been altered to fix issue #686
In the process of doing so, this should now be fixed: the setting will never be greyed out for any users.

See #690 for the fix
