Since applying the 1.23 beta firmware to my Treo650, I've been experiencing intermittent problems which seemed to point to problems with Saved Preferences. Today, I decided to do some digging, and I think I've confirmed my suspicions.

I have found that there are several entries in Saved Preferences which cause the device to reset whenever I try to Export them to a memo using FileZ (v6.6). The odd thing is that I can happily back them up and restore them using Cleanup (v3.37b), and I can even view them from FileZ; it's only the Export function that causes the reset, but it's consistent - the same prefs will blow me out of the water very time I try to export them.

I guess I'm just going to have to delete them and either recreate them manually from the application, or try to retrieve them from an earlier (good) version of Saved Prefs. But this leads me to wonder if there is any sort of utility out there that can perform some routine health-checking on Saved Preferences, so that this sort of problem can be detected at an early stage before it becomes a major headache.

Any suggestions for alternative recovery procedures or utilities gratefully accepted.
