For some reason, no matter what button I press on the difficulty screen on Dungeons of Dredmor, it automatically selects Dwarvish Moderation and Permadeath. Doesn't matter where I click, or whether I press up or down, etc. Hell, I can hit the back button and it moves to the Skill Select screen. Has anybody else had this problem, and how do I solve it?

After some experimentation, I resolved the issue by floating my cursor over the settings and scrolling with the mousewheel to select or deselect options
