I've recently added 2 users to my Mac. Everytime one of them signs out or we switch away from her account to some other user's account, all her preferences and settings erase. For example, she adds an application icon to the dock, then it disappears. Or she sets Mail to not collapse conversations, then it recollapses conversations. I suspect this is a permissions issue, but I don't know how to cure it. Any suggestions? Thanks!

PowerMac, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
