   System.Configuration support for Save() has not really been a priority for
us, because few people use it, and in cases like this, it does not do what you
think it should do.

   It does a few things: (a) it restart the application, because of a change in
web.config, this means that all running requests will be aborted until the new
settings take place;   (b) using a plain file-save operation to store your
settings is not multi-request safe in the presence of various users making

    We encourage developers to handle authentication and authorization through
a database.
