Make iChat remember your Group preferences Apps
I was having a problem with iChat where it kept forgetting my choice to show only certain AIM groups on the iChat buddy list (View->Show Groups). So I asked the forum. When no one responded, I did a little investigating into the preferences file. I usually find these files to be quite confusing (even for me, and I'm a programmer!). But this one was simple. In your ~/Library -> Preferences -> com.apple.iChat.plist file, find the node called EnableGroups and set it to yes. Now it will remember your Groups preference even after restarting iChat.

Is this different than Preferences/General/Use Groups in Buddy List?
