ALL: Config file messed up with latest SVN

ScummVM SVN 0.9 for Win32 (1746K exe file, last update: April 15, 2006, 6:32 pm).

I'm running on Windows XP SP2. Since a couple of SVN builds, I'm having two problems with the scummvm.ini config file:

1. music_driver is always set to "true" in the config file, whatever the actual driver I choose in the Launcher. I don't know what "true" means in that case, but it looks like an incorrect value to me. Ingame, games that rely on Midi or FM always fall back to FM (Sam and Max for example).

2. all entries are systematically unsorted after running a game with the SVN build.

o Config file before launching SVN:

[scummvm] aspect_ratio=false autosave_period=0 enable_gs=true extrapath=D:\ScummVM\!extra\ fullscreen=true gfx_mode=HQ2x gui_theme=default lastselectedgame=sam multi_midi=true music_driver=auto music_volume=192 native_mt32=true output_rate=44100 savepath=D:\ScummVM\!save\ sfx_volume=192 speech_volume=192 subtitles=true themepath=D:\ScummVM\!theme\ versioninfo=0.9.0svn

o Config file after launching SVN and running Sam:

(Also note the versioninfo=true field.)

The bug you reported (music_driver etc. being set to true) is fixed now, thanks for the report.

As for the key/value pairs not being sorted: That is by design; that they were sorted before was purly coincidence. If you think that they key/value pairs should be sorted, feel free to submit a feature request and we'll consider it for the future... though it might help to add some reasons why you think it's worth the effort :-).

Thanks for fixing it so quickly.

I just thought the unsorted thing was a side-effect of the "true" bug, which is why I felt necessary to report it. No particular reason for having alphabetically-sorted values, except that it makes them easier to find when you're used to edit them manually. But it's no big deal, really.

Just to explain: The "sorting issue" is actually a bit older, and is a result of us switching from Map to HashMap. Map kept everything in a binary search tree, which means it was automatically sorted. OTOH, HashMap now keeps everything in a seemingly random order. We could write the key/value pairs sorted, but then we'll have to explicitly sort them. Certainly possible, but requires extra code... Wouldn't be too difficult to implement, either. But I shy away from adding this (which could introduce new bugs).
