That's strange. They should only be ignored if the user prefs contains a
clear_headers, or if it has an add_header for the exact same header.
Does your user_prefs or global contain a clear_headers command?

There are none that are cleared simply by the merits of user_prefs
existing. An empty prefs is the same as no prefs.[color=blue]
