This seems to me to be a questionable UX decision. Many users would prefer when going to some folders to see icons and for other folders to see a list, based on the contents of the folders. It makes less sense to have the persistence of the setting based on the random fact of a given window invocation at a given time.

Perhaps it should be a gconf setting, or better yet, a setting in the Preferences.
