Sv_cheats 1; impossible to enable

Hey folks,

Regardless of whether I type "sv_cheats 1" or "sv_cheats true" into the console whilst in-game and receiving the message that said command will be active for the next game, nothing changes. After typing in the command and restarting my last save, then typing in a Doom cheat code, the game still says, "sv_cheats must be true to enable this command".

How the heck do I solve this problem?

Do not load a save. This variable is being stored in there and overrides your local setting when reloading.

Does that mean the only way to enable it, after typing sv_cheats true in the console, is to start a new game?

But why is it stored in savegames? I don't remember how it worked in Quake engine games.
Edit: now that i think of it cheats can be used anyway in single player games.

It's a server CVAR, which means it is game state. All current server CVARs are part of the savegame.

One thing that I couldn't figure out is why you need to restart the map to enable them.

The entire point of this CVAR is to block cheats. If you could just disable it, it'd be useless. This is primarily a multiplayer option, plus, of course settable per skill.
