Open a measure tool and switch the units to another one
Click the configuration dialog and validate it without making changes
Your unit selection is lost and the default hard-coded unit (see #15435) replaces it

Maybe, but silently change configuration of a dialog is not good. Note that it does nothing to do with clicking the "Configuration button":
- change the unit of the widget and do what you want
- then simply open the Options dialog from Settings menu (do anything else, in any other tab)
- and apply the dialog.
--> You lose the units you chose.
It's not a big issue but as it is the units set in Project properties that is applied (and not the one in global settings), the measure widget units should be automatically changed only if user manually change the units in Project properties or at least open and apply that dialog (not the settings one).
