Scale Dependent Rendering

After going through a dozen or more layers I had set up all the label settings for each layer, including where it got the label value from, font size, etc. I had also set up scale dependant rendering for each layer, so that text labels wouldn't be shown if you were zoomed out greater than 1:3,000. So when you zoom in close in QGIS all the labels appear, when you zoom out they disappear. Simple right? Well I saved this to a project file and everything was going great, but when I closed down QGIS and re-opened the project I found that although all my label settings for each layer had been saved, all of the layers had scale dependant rendering turned off. This resulted in every single label being shown at the full extents (creating an ugly black mess!).
So it seems that although the settings for labels are saved with a project file, even if scale dependent rending is set for a label and saved, QGIS doesn't save this setting, meaning it defaults to scale dependant rendering turned off - showing all labels.
Hopefully this can be fixed by the next version, thanks!

Hello, bug triage...
in QGIS 2.13 master, all of scale dependent rendering options (for layers and for labels) are saved into the project.
I am closing this bug.
