User-Defined Smart Query Filters and options disappear after re-opening\editing the query

When setting output type, filter and filter operator options on the Set save options of a user-defined smart query, these options disappear after when you click edit to open the smart query after having initially saved and closed.
This is an issue where the Application Detail options don't hold their static Output Type, Filter, or Filter Operation settings.  The smart field will work and continue to work as setup as long as it's never edited.  If this occurs the workaround is to create it and leave it alone or if the smart query is edited re-enter the options/values again and save the query.

Steps to Duplicate

1. Go to Administration\Application\Shell Design\User-defined Smart Queries
2.  Click Add to create a new user-defined smart query
3. Select Revenue as the source view

     k. Application Details\Application
     l. Application Details\Amount
    m. Receipt amount
    n. Revenue ID
    o. Payment method

5. Go to the Set save options tab, and set the following options:
