I am going through an upgrade to 4.2.0 according to the upgrade guide. While going through the configure script, it would allow me to modify everything I tried except for SafeEnvPath and WebMasterEmail. I tried several times to set these through the configure script and, although it claimed it did, when I went back to configure it would flag that they weren't set. Indeed, they were set to a zero-length string in the LocalLib.cfg file. When I manually edited that file to set the strings to their proper value, configure no longer complained about them not being set.

It looks like it didn't save my login manager, either. I had selected Apache and it saved Template.

very odd. seems to work for me. Slight suspicion that it was a permission issue, but, dunno. closing as unreproducable.
