"Keyboard Layout A" by default for Port 2 ?

Hi !

I don't know if it was always a common feature of Winuae, but I noticed a slightly incomfortable little thing:
I used to have my Saitek P990 gamepad always plugged to my PC, and used it as "Port 2" in Winuae.
Recently, I unplugged it to use it with another device, and Winuae put "Keyboard Layout A" as Port 2 instead.
This layout seems to be a bit messy with the numpad etc... so I have to choose another option, usually <none>.
Maybe it would be more practical to have <none> as default for Port 2, if no joystick is detected ?
(Sorry if my English is not that good, I hope it all make sense for you)

Thank you !

Well I don't use a gamepad and I haven't got a numpad so I have to change it to Keyboard Layout B. I don't think there is going to be a generic solution that suits everybody.

I would suggest making your own default config like I have.

That's why the most logical option would be <none> by default, when no device is used as Port 2, then another choice by the user if he really wants to.

I think this behavior has been like this since the beginning, perhaps it should be changed..

Thanks for the enlightenment Tony ! I didn't noticed it before because my gamepad was always plugged to my PC and part of my default configuration... But that would be nice indeed if <none> could be the fallback option !
Thank you ! ;-)
