Maybe because guisettings.xml doesn't get saved because you unplug the unit before shutting down XBMC, so it reverts to the default settings the next time you launch XBMC? Properly shutdown XBMC before unplugging the unit and see if that resolves your problem.

just wanted to note that i was getting this problem on my andoid box (the atv1200) and it was driving me mad.

thanks for posting artrafael because i think closing xbmc before powering off my box has solved my problem. so obvious really.

before i found your post i had created a script that backs up the two required xbmc files, and another script that moves the backed up files into the xbmc folder again should you ever encounter the problem and lose your skin settings:
