settings.xml file gets corrupted each time I try to start a new game

Issue type:

Each time I click on the green Start button in the ‘play’ tab I get the following popup message:

<<there your an config reading error file was>>

After that, if I close and start OCTGN, it crashes at the very startup.
The only way is to delete the file settings.xml in the \OCTGN\Config Folder (OCTGN will create a new one), but the new settings.xml File will get corrupted as well as soon as I try to start a game (so, it’s an endless loop).

I read a bit into the logs and here’s the interesting stuff:

Fact is, there is no (apparent) other process accessing the settings.xml file.
