i need to set "ping every x seconds" to zero. i type zero and save. if i close heidisql and restart the value of "ping every x seconds" isn't saved.

see the second uploaded image... thats the error after 20 seconds in the data-view... that's why i need to setup the zero value.

Reason is commit:ac2f7cf541df9bf277873b1c7fc5d3c9cac2efed - going to revert the relevant line, which I meant was fixing old session settings.
