It's confirmed, however ui.ini has no field to save the software-list filter.

It's as if the functionality hasn't been designed into the UI, rather than being a bug.

Probably more of a feature request. Like any feature request, the devs will have to decide if it's worth pursuing.

I mean, if it does it for arcade games you'd expect it to do the same for console games.

This isn’t practical without more structured/extensible storage for persistent UI state.
