This sounds like a bug in the options dialog.

Please file a bug report on this. It's a bug in the C code.

No, I don't think you're doing anything wrong. As for how to fix it,
use "OK" instead of "Apply" ;) I bet what's going on is that the Apply
probably does a recursive "set_sensitive" or something....

This scheme code looks correct.
