Tested on i386. Can't discern any difference in behavior with the
autorefresh = 1
autorefresh = no
autorefresh = 0
No autorefresh entry in /etc/yumex.conf
Would be nice if yumex made a backup of the config file as opposed to
silently clobbering it. Seems to make quite a lot of changes when
simply trying to toggle one flag:
# diff yumex.conf_orig yumex.conf
< autorefresh = 1
< recentdays = 14
< proxy =
< exclude =
< debug = 0
< color_install = darkgreen
< color_update = red
< color_normal = black
< color_obsolete = blue
< filelist = 0
< changelog = 0
< plugins = 1
< usecache = 0
< fullobsoletion = 0
< yumdebuglevel = 2

/etc/yumex.profiles.conf does not end with a newline.
The "Group View" check box doesn't seem to to do much. Noticed that
"Development/Development Tools" was not checked despite the fact that I
have extensive development tools installed. Toggling the check put an
icon on the line, but added nothing to the queue to process. On
restarting the box is again un-checked.
Basic package installation works OK.
