3. Change the CVars and whatnot;
4. Set cleanExit to true on PLAYER_LOGOUT.
The absence of write on game crash implies NO evidence of a clean exit.
Game crash = no disk write, including step 2.

You could have that variable set to true at login, change it to false at step 2. Game crashes, the change isn't saved, and it will still be set to true.

Saved Variables don't get written to until you reload/logout/exit the game, no matter how many changes you make.
