I hope not!
There are two new key bindings for V30: "Add Bookmark" and "Toggle 
Bookmark". The old setting "AltClearSavedPosition" is no longer used. 
The code will set up the two new settings based on the old setting, only 
the first time the frontend is started on V30, and only if the frontend 
was already used before. After that, there will already be settings in 
the database for "Add bookmark" and "toggle bookmark", even if they are 
empty settings, and they will not be added again.

You can now set the SELECT keys to anything you wish in frontend. They 
will not be overwritten because the REG_KEY only adds them if they are 
not already there.

If anything does not work this way, let me know.
