Version 2 of patch without corrections of non-related errors in the settings dialog.

Yes, works for me. However, there are some unrelated changes to other widgets in settings-dialog.ui that would be better done in a separate changeset. Can you clean those out and resubmit?

The attached patch provides a "Cancel" / "OK" button pair.

Please consider adding either a "Close" button or a pair of "Cancel" "OK" buttons to settings-dialog.ui.

In the default Gnome3 environment, dialog windows do not get any decoration so there is no graphical way to close the current settings-dialog. I can hit the Escape key on my keyboard, but that's it. In general, you can't rely on the window manager to provide the close button for you.

A single "Close" button would be enough for me, but some people may prefer a "Cancel" option as well, that looks like it would be easy logic for.
