User dashlet layout settings should not be saved in cookies

User settings for the selection and layout of their dashboard is saved in browser cookies. 

Cookies and browser histories are routinely deleted as a troubleshooting tool and when this happens, user settings in PE are wiped out. Many people go to a lot of effort to set up their screens just right and this can quickly be destroyed by deleting cookies. 

Seems a better design would be to save these settings in the database. That way your personalized settings are portable and persistent.
