Yeah, it's a mess.  Basically the only way to use it (on GNU/Linux, at 
least) is to define or delete a profile from the Playback Profile Group, 
then Next all the way through to get back to the settings menu, then go 
back in, then define/delete another profile, then Next all the way...  
It takes a while, but it works.  It's a good thing that there's not much 
reason for users to define their own profiles/groups, anymore (now that 
we have so many good ones pre-defined).
