I had my tab position preference set to "Right" but after I migrated to the new preference system the tabs show up on the top of the window until I open the Preferences dialg.  As soon as I do that they immediately jump to the right.  This seems to be because initializing the preferences dialog causes gnc_main_window_update_tab_position to be called when it binds the radio buttons to the preferences for tab position.  I set a breakpoint there and this is the first time that this function is called.

I can't find them and I can't find any recently changed file that might contain them.  When I try to look at them with the gsettings command, I seem to get the default values, but GnuCash manages to get the correct current values.

See if ~/Library/Preferences/org.gnucash.Gnucash.plist exists. If it does, the gsettings is using defaults.
