I get my environment working so I could start learning Haiku coding. As
guided in web site I should start with easy ones so if you don't mind I

Ticket #1006
Open the Backgrounds preflet, change something, click Apply. Result: you
can't click on Revert, anymore.

Revert should bring all workspaces back to the state when the
application was started.

So, by hitting revert all settings should return the state before latest
save, right?
