Startup variables, Performance tab, cache size variable needs a memory size (k or m). It currently doesn't have one and when you save it, it saves the value without a size. When you restart mysql (4.0.x) it doesn't read this value so query_cache_size remains at zero, disabled. Manually changing my.cnf to include a 'k' at the end of the value works properly.

How to repeat:
Go into the admin. Select startup variables, performance tab. Change the cache size to some value. Open your my.cnf in an editor and see that the value doesn't have a memory qualifier.
