A clean install of 10.8 then transferred data (not settings) from 10.6.8 system via Migration Assistant and then updated to 10.8.2.

Now every time I close Preferences, login items disappear. Loginwindow.plist file won't update. Also it contained all the lines from the old system. When I moved it, a new, empty file was generated but it won't update either. They weren't locked.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), External HDD, Time Machine
