Open a vector layer properties dialog
In Diagrams tab, check "Display diagrams" and do any settings you want on your data. Apply and close the dialog
Reopen the file properties dialog and uncheck now "Display diagrams". Apply and close the dialog
Reopen once again the vector layer properties and check "Display diagrams". All the changes you have done previously are lost. You need to set them again. Unchecking the "Display Diagrams" just erased your settings.

Find the right settings for diagrams on a layer is not an easy task, so losing it like this is really annoying. Because sometimes, you just need temporarily to not show the diagrams and see what is below.

As it is done for labels, the way you designed your diagrams should be "kept in mind" even when you uncheck "Display diagrams" checkbox and reproduced as soon as you check again the box.

I have exactly the same problem on QGis 2.6.1

I would like to say that additionally, it would make sense to be able to save diagram settings in the QLD style file. THe buttons are there under the diagrams tab but clearly it is not possible to save or load diagrams style settings from a file.
