BugFix & Update: DriveSort 1.240

This version fixes a small bug in the user preferences loading code which prevented DriveSort from remembering you chose the new logical long name comparison base in a previous execution of DriveSort. In this case, at startup DriveSort was switching to a comparison by file size. Thanks to the user who reported it.

Another user asked for an indication of when DriveSort was working and done, so this version also shows some progress when sorting folders and when saving the sorted folders to disk.

The sorting operation is usually rather fast, but the saving operation can take a while when processing many folders on slow peripherals. When sorting or saving, DriveSort now displays the current operation in the status bar at the bottom and turns the mouse cursor into a wait cursor. When it's saving it also displays in red in the progress bar how many directory entries it has saved.
