'Open Recent' setting in System Prefs also affects programs
Authored by: fracai on May 19, '10 09:20:15AM

This being global isn't a bug at all. In fact, I suspect that it's merely hierarchical, and this hint is setting the global default. Whatever "defaults write" command corresponds to this setting, I bet there's a corresponding setting for each Apple application which follows the global. Set the global to none and every app loses its history. Set a specific app to 10 and everything else stays at none, but this app starts accumulating history again. There are several other examples of global and per app settings like this and I wouldn't be surprised at all to find that this is the same.
