[MlMt] Keeping layout when restarting MailMate

I think it’s a longstanding bug in MailMate that the column layouts 
lose their persistence. It’s been an issue since the first time I used 
the app, and I wrote to Bennie about it at the time. I have a workaround 
that resolves this issue, but it’s not perfect. Every once in a while, 
it pops up again after I have tweaked the column headings, and it takes 
me 20+ minutes of futzing to recover. I don’t know exactly what 
triggers the problem. To fix it, I have to define a new default column 
layout, apply it to every mailbox (folder), and then *change* one of the 
columns, so it’s no longer the default. That usually gets things back 
to a persistent mode, though it often takes some futzing around, as I 
said. It’s one of the truly frustrating things about this software.
