Description:
In the General tab for Configuration, I see the following fields:

"Default table type"
"Default storage engine"

Both have identical descriptions, and the fact that the former is deprecated in version 5.0 (I am using 5.0.67 here) is not referenced at all.

Furthermore, setting this field does not appear to have the anticipated result.  When I preview the file, I see this at the end:

max_allowed_packet=64Mdefault-table-type = Heap

Not good, but then when I press "apply", nothing changes in the my.ini file.

When I close the tab for this server and reconnect, the changes made have been reverted (or never saved).

How to repeat:
View the general configuration tab.

Suggested fix:
At minimum:

1.  Note deprecation of default table type in description
2.  Make make application of changes work correctly.

An entry has been added to the 5.2.16 changelog:

In the General tab of the configuration file editor, the option Default table type was present, even though it was deprecated in MySQL Server 5.0. Further, selecting this option and applying changes did not change the server configuration file.
