It has to be set to "false". I hoped you had it to "true" but no luck ;-(

Try with the usual way by renaming (*rename*, do not delete) the GNOME 
setting configuration folder but for the new gnome-shell I'm not sure 
what to touch to make the magic... you can start with "~/.config/dconf" 
and "~/.cache/dconf" first and see if that makes any difference as all 
the gnome-shell settings seem to be stored at dconf :-?
