Yes, you are correct.

It looks like the first time the server is started, registry keys are
created under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Javasoft/Prefs/portlet_application/ containing
what appears to be all my portlet preferences. 

If I navigate to a portlet and make a preference change
(preferences.store()) I get the following warning:
"[org.apache.ojb.broker.core.PersistenceBrokerImpl] WARN: No running tx
found, please only store in context of an PB-transaction, to avoid
side-effects - e.g. when rollback of complex objects" and the registry
values don't seem to be affected.

After stopping the server, I can see that both the PREFS_NODE and
PREFS_PROPERTY_VALUE tables have been left pretty much untouched.

However, after restarting the server, visiting that same page, and stopping
the server the second time, the PREFS_PROPERTY_VALUE table is still
untouched but the PREFS_NODE tables has several new rows whose NODE_NAME
fields correspond to the portlets on the page I visited (though the
preferences were not loaded when I visited the page).

I'm not exactly sure what to make of this information, but apparently
there's some sort of inconsistency between reading/storing the preferences
in the registry versus the database between server starts.

Thanks so much for your help so far. I wonder if you would have any
suggestions on how I might track down the underlying problem.
