You mean the values like invoice templates, shells, SMTP machine, etc? I 
think I had the same problem with my installation (similar versions).

The values are set in the text files in the install location (in my case 
/usr/local/etc/freeside), in the conf.[blah] directory. I think in the 
end I just set them one value at a time (they usually seemed to save the 
very first time), then changed the permissions on the resulting file so 
it couldn't edit it again. Definitely not the way it should work, but it 
did the job.
