Inertia scrolling keeps reseting...

Is anyone else having a problem where they enable 'elastic scrolling' then it randomly turns off, so you have to go back to preferences to toggle it on and off?

I've seen one or two posts comment on this but that was from April with nobody mentioning it again.

Fixed it.

I had MobileMe and it was trying to sync with the other computers which caused the reset. Turn off Sync system Preferences and it should be ok.

Actually, you didn't fix it. Here's what I've learned about the inertia scroll setting:

If you install Lion "fresh" it will be toggled on by default. Once you toggle it off however, it will be enabled again every time you reboot.

If you upgrade Lion on top of Snow Leopard *AND* the inertia setting is off, Lion will remember that setting from boot to boot. Change the setting though and it won't stick.

It's a bug... one of many I hope they address.

This is super annoying, having the same issue. I liked scrolling without inertia in Snow Leopard, but inertia feels more natural in Lion, so I turned it on... and now it won't remember it. Apple better fix this soon.
