Bruce Steers is right about hSettings needing to be global. I made changes to effect that including not re-creating it multiple 
times. And, it still does not work as it should. The settings do get saved correctly, but upon a relaunch, they are reverted.

Stepping through the program, I see that at line 126 ("ChkAflag_CM.Value = myAflag_CM"),
*setting the value of the CheckBox is treated as a click* and the ChkAflag_CM_Click event handler is triggered.

** Benoît, is this expected behavior, or a bug? **

The Click event handler calls myMakeAflags() which tests the value of each CheckBox and sets the appropriate myAflag_[XX] 
accordingly. Since the only checkbox with a true value is ChkAflag_CM, the settings are reverted to the same as the default.
