Default Number of workers (1,2,8): always switches back from 1,8 to 1,2,8 and overwrites prime.txt

Re: mprime (Linux)

I found an odd behavior regarding the topic 16. Options/Benchmark from the menu.

If I select option 16. Options/Benchmark in the menu, some default settings for Number of workers (comma separated list of ranges) (1,2,8): reappear - all other inputs are properly accepted and stored for future use, e.g. MinBenchFFT=4096.

If I type in 1,8, the benchmark will run only 8 cores, 1 worker and 8 cores, 8 workers but the next restart of mprime the menu askes for the default 1,2,8 again.

How to fix this?
