[chirp_users] Tone setting is not persistent and is overridden

Folks,

Chirp 0.4 and 20141215 version both seem to have an issue with PL tone setting.  When I use the drop down to select a PL for Tone and then a different one for ToneSQL, one of the two PLs is either set to the default 88.5 or incorrect.  I’m using a Baofeng UV-5R however find this behavior occurs even when working with CSV files.  For instance, I have the following CSV file:

Location,Name,Frequency,Duplex,Offset,Tone,rToneFreq,cToneFreq,DtcsCode,DtcsPolarity,Mode,TStep,Skip,Comment,URCALL,RPT1CALL,RPT2CALL
4,N2JDW,147.150000,-,0.600000,TSQL,136.5,123.0,023,NN,FM,5.00,,,,,,

I then import it and results in the following:

4,N2JDW,147.150000,-,0.600000,TSQL,123.0,123.0,023,NN,FM,5.00,,,,,,


As you can see, the first Tone value was overridden after the import.  It should be 136.5, however is 123.0.  I find similar behavior when saving a Chirp image files and loading it back it.  Therefore this impacts more then just CSV import.

Appreciate any insight here if this is a bug or not.

Thanks,
Nick
