This just started happening recently in our development environment. The row
id default 0 general 0
keeps getting inserted into core_config_data. Every time I delete it manually via sql, it comes back as if its from some cron job.
So the point is that when this row is in the database, my entire General tab under system->configuration is cleared/reset/blank/deselected. (this messes up the frontend also where all the countries disappear from drop down.)
This is driving me crazy, how can I pinpoint what is causing this entry to keep reappearing? Could it be from a rogue cron job, config.xml, or setup installer sql?
*Update: I believe the SQL query causing this is:
value) VALUES ('0')
Found that query while searching logs for all queries being run.
