I finally got around to installing it, after getting it at the end of April - and only to have this problem too. I pasted the string in, the message on the top went away.
But the Plugins page kept saying to register, and it was even pointing at a weird URL, the version I had was from then, too. So I thought maybe because of 3.0 I should change it, and I did- the URL in the plugin list changed, as did the message, and the notice was still gone from the plugin settings.
I was curious if perhaps I should do it again, so I pasted it in, and removed a couple characters and then saved it, I was also curious to see what it did if the code was 'wrong', as there is no visible confirmation that it's right or wrong - I thought. Well, after I did that, the notice came back on top of the settings screen and thats it. I can't get rid of it, even updating to the latest beta downloadable. So I nuked all of it, used the uninstall option and put back the version I started with originally .. and got the same thing.
I even thought about the paste from a text editor bit, before I found this thread- no difference. I've never had that problem before, but there's always a first time.
I do think there should be some visible confirmation of acceptance when saved, too. Not just the notice disappearing. As I have, in the midst of this had it disappear and come back with a page reload.
