Imported settings not working

Hi, I am having trouble with imported settings not changing the Filezilla active settings.

I have altered the settings as needed and then created my export file, FileZilla.xml, which I can open and see has all the values that I changed. For example:

<Setting name="File exists action upload">6</Setting>

When I import the XML file in a new Filezilla client and restart, the settings are still set to their defaults. The program does not generate any errors, and does provide feedback that the task has completed: "The settings have imported successfully..." and "The selected categories have been imported."

If I look in $HOMEDIR\AppData\FileZilla\filezilla.xml, it still has the default setting:

<Setting name="File exists action upload">0</Setting>

Site manager entries are getting imported with no problem, but none of the settings are changing.

I've tried multiple times, restarting FileZilla each time after import, and it never shows the imported settings.

Below is the client version info, and I've attached the exported settings file I'm trying to import (I manually deleted the Last Server tag for privacy reasons).
