System Prefs/Kbd shortcuts reset after MBP restart?

Everytime I restart my 2017 15" TB MBP, some system preferences seem to reset. Case in point would be keyboard shortcuts.
I have option+spacebar for Spotlight and cmd+spacebar for Launchbar. At every restart, Spotlight defaults back to cmd+spacebar (and I get a Launchbar notification about conflicting keyboard shortcuts).
Where, why and how do i fix this? Seems to be a user account related issue as I created a new account to test this and haven’t had the same issue there.

same happens with Show Status Bar in View settings for Safari; I want to have it on (Show) but defaults back to Hide.
