Hi, Dan and Gerry!

Using "camera.reboot" cam settings will not be saved under certain circumstances.
Reproduced in 7D and 650D. April, 1st build + tonights

How to reproduce:
Photo mode M.
Open Canon settings screen by pressing Q button.
Select WB settings and change using wheel.
Now press Half Shutter to exit.
Open ML screen by pressing trashcan button.
Run Lua script with "camera.reboot".

After reboot open Canon settings and check WB setting: Change undone.

After changing WB exit screen by pressing Q.
-> Setting persistent after "camera.reboot".

Script used:
Code: [Select]
-- Unsophisticated reboot (Modules)

function main()

keymenu =
    parent = "Modules",
    name = "Reboot",
    help = "Reboots cam. Will not ask for confirmation!",
    select = function(this) task.create(main) end,

WB is not the only setting affected. But it is one of the settings reproducable on both cams.

How to prevent this? Which function/command will force settings to be stored before "camera.reboot"?
