Calculate all sizes problem


Crotchety UI Nitpicker
I have a problem that's persisted in every version of OS X, from 10.0 right to 10.4.1:

I cannot get the default ("all windows") list view to calculate folder sizes and KEEP calculating folder sizes. I can set it and it'll work, but then it'll reset every time the Finder is quit (e.g., when restarting, logging out, or crashing). The setting works perfectly consistently on a "this window only" basis, but not as the default.

Is there any way to solve this with plist tricks or anything? I took a quick look through and did some Googling, but I didn't find anything.
