 Editing the file manually will give you random results as the file is
 managed by the system.

 new iMac, I fresh launched the Cyberduck on new iMac before copy the old

 "~/Library/Application Support/Cyberduck", but new iMac settings still
 keep exist when I moved a new copy of Cyberduck into Application and
 launch it...

 Thanks for additional comment. We do not manipulate the preference
 ourselves but only through the system frameworks provided. Therefore there
 is not much I can do here expect to advice to quit ''Cyberduck'' before
 replacing the preferences.
