Sorry, my last answer was before I saw David's reply.

Perhaps you mean "Detect line wrap in text files".

Yes, I didn't turn that off when I first tried it, because I want to detect
line wraps -- I just don't want to insert newlines.  (I see that menu item
executes "toggle-text-mode-auto-detect-wrap".)  If I turn that option on or
off from the menu, it doesn't seem to matter -- only "Break lines at 70"
seems to matter.

In Jeff's step 4 (below), I had hook for "smart-spacing-mode" and
"auto-detect-wrap shown".  I deleted "auto-detect-wrap" (don't know if I had
to), then had to reload the file to get the functionality I wanted.

   1) uncheck auto-detect wrap

This is all far too confusing for me.

My original question doesn't seem to be answered -- why don't my steps 4 and
5 to save the options actually save the options?


Otherwise, you did the right things.  If it still doesn't work, we should
