Caused by a typo in mysqlx_startup_variables_description.xml the value name for the 'Wait Timeout' is wait_amount instead of wait_timeout.

The fix is easy (See below)

How to repeat:
1. Go to Startup Variables -> Networking
2. Change the value of Wait Timeout (e. g. to 14400)
3. Click 'Apply Changes'
4. Check your my.cnf or my.ini-file

Actual result:
It contains wait_amount = 14400

Expected result:
It contains wait_timeout = 14400

Suggested fix:
