    Where does Mac Lightroom 4.4 store all its preferences?


      I have a problem importing video into Lightroom 4.4 on Mac OS X 10.9.4, and the problem goes away if I test with a brand new user account.  I'm trying to recreate this virgin state in my main user account by deleting all the Lightroom preferences.  But so far I haven't been able to ferret out all the places Lightroom stores preferences.  Here's what I'm deleting so far (all relative to my home directory):


      1. "Library/Application Support/Adobe" folder
      2. "Library/Preferences/com.adobe.Lightroom4.plist" file (actually tried all com.adobe.* files)
      3. "Pictures/Lightroom" directory (catalog, etc)
      4. "Library/Caches/com.adobe.Lightroom4" directory
      5. "Library/Caches/Adobe" directory
      6. Lightroom menu => Preferences => File Handling => Video Cache Settings => "Purge Cache" button


      Even after deleting all that, Lightroom menu => Preferences => General items still persist (e.g. the "Automatically check for updates" checkbox and the two completion sounds), my recent catalogs in File => Open Recent still persist, and my video import problem still persists.  I believe I've covered all the files listed here, so there must be some other place where Lightroom is storing preferences.  What am I missing?  Thanks in advance!
