 Editing the file manually will give you random results as the file is

 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.

 I just don't understand why Cyberduck don't read the preferences plist
 from Preferences folder from app start...(It did when it first time
 launch, I think maybe there no settings cached in systems...)
