Summary 06637: Internal UI does not save entire configuration
Description mame.ini is missing all options from OSD KEYBOARD MAPPING OPTIONS and below (compared to 0.187 mame.ini). As a result, respective option changes in the ui are not applied and saved after restarting MAME.
Steps To Reproduce Go to video options, change Wait Vertical Sync to ON and save configuration. Restart MAME and notice that it is set to OFF again.

Are you saying new mame.ini created with "mame -cc" does have anything listed for OSD KEYBOARD MAPPING OPTIONS and beyond?

I can confirm starting MAME -> Pick Game -> Configure Machine -> Save machine configuration
The output file is about half of what it should be and stops at the Title mentioned before outputting: "OSD KEYBOARD MAPPING OPTIONS"
Using mame -cc outputs everything to mame.ini. -showusage and -showconfig both also output the entire configuration.

That PR is a horrible hack. The code in MAME proper shouldn't ever need to know specifics of the OSD implementation.
