Bug Description

Running Ubuntu MATE 15.04 from source code, in a 64-bit Virtualbox VM. Kernel=3.19.0-18. Bleachbit 1.7.7 beta.

Tried test #3 from this webpage:

"Reset the BleachBit configuration (File - Shred Settings and Quit), restart BleachBit, and verify it does not crash during startup. Then start BleachBit again, and verify it starts OK."

It does not crash upon restart, but bleachbit.ini does not get shredded/erased. So when restarting I just see all the same cleaners I had selected before.

When you choose "Shred settings and quit," it runs a preview. Does it show the BleachBit.ini file in the preview?

Yes, it shows that file in the preview. That file and folder=cleaners retains the same Date Modified. I'll attach a screenshot and the log from running bleachbit.py in the terminal.
