Panels state saves and restores despite disabled 'Auto save setup'

Description

There's no way to retain some initial panel state. I've got specific setting of listing, sorting, other_dir etc. and I want them to be permanent; if I do too much mess during work (like ctrl-x [iq], sorting, filtering, whatever) I restore order by quick mc restart. It worked since ever till 4.6.2 including, now it's gone. Moreover mc disobeys chmod -w ~/.mc/panels.ini. Possible solutions:

  1. add config options (like Auto save panels state),
  2. obey panels.ini permissions,
  3. bring back previous behaviour.

Added new option in ~/.mc/ini file: auto_save_setup_panels. Default value is 0. In this case panel states are not saved in ~/.mc/panels.ini file.
