After each reboot of my Jolla the Enable swipe closing setting gets disabled. Once it has been enabled, I would expect the setting to be left enabled, also after a reboot of the phone.

and unwanted rebooting occurs quite frequently these days...

This happens after every reboot for me as well.

I did a factory reset and reinstalled all upgrades to attempt to solve a number of issues I was experiencing.
After a fresh upgrade v1.0.5.19 I have restored my settings from backup and this issue is no longer existent.
Other issues, including the phone never asking me to activate my SIM card have also gone.

Note: If you don't want to receive new messages that will be deleted when you restore from previous backup, then simply do not authenticate when SIM PIN is requested.
Press cancel.
This will put the phone in Flight Mode, but you can still activate WiFi and do the upgrades.

Extra geeky note: If you DO receive messages inadvertently, which then generates a new database only consisting of new messages, it IS possible to merge the databases. I did this manually, as I only received one message before I realised I had to switch off the Mobile Network.
If requested, I can post some instructions.

i would rather have simpler solution than restart the phone into factory settings :( I would have to set everything up again... is there some way to do it at least through command line??

I traced this to the parameter close_from_top in /home/nemo/.gconf/desktop/lipstick-jolla-home/%gconf.xml. But setting it to true in that file does not help. This is a bug. The qml code for the shortcuts settings page is /usr/share/jolla-settings/pages/shortcuts/shortcuts.qml. I'll try to debug this when I get time.
