Also the menu entry "File->Cloud storage online" is active which is also incorrect. I have the feeling that also the overall behavior regarding which data is used is rather strange but that's just a guess.

My quick test here with a couple of scenarios seems to indicate that we misinterpret the setting for what to do at startup. Haven't had spent enough time staring at the code to understand why.

This is always the risk with rewrites like this (and why Tomaz was not excited to see another rewrite of the preferences subsystem, given that he had done this before and felt the existing system was good enough...) but now that we started, we should track down the little bugs but otherwise finish things.
