On many pages there is a small "open a new phpMyAdmin window" at the
bottom. There could be such a small icon next to it, if this panel is
influenced by some user pref. Or this could be at the top. Maybe if
there is a standard user prefs icon, users will notice it.

Otherwise, users will have to be very familiar with the user prefs panel
to understand which panel each setting influences.
