Save preferences/keymap file to user file, for manual save & restore

So if you don’t happen to see the status line text, “good luck ya schmuck ya shouldn’ta been snoozing!!1!” -Ton, probably. There’s no good reason to disappear a warning/clear a status line until the user DOES something with the program.

The big error dialog looks like this:
