This bug was reported again the Debian XBoard package (XBoard 4.6.2), see http://bugs.debian.org/677313.

Quite annoyingly, xboard seems to ignore this option when it is given in a configuration file (doesn't matter if the top level one or one included with -settingsFile), and to always force a "classic" time control on startup. This can be changed interactively with the GUI but is not saved to the configuration file.
