That setting has moved to the setup program, as it is a backend setting.
Its name and semantics have also changed, which is why your setting was
lost.  Run setup to reset it.

Note: you may (and should, to avoid confusion) remove settings.txt and
theme.txt, and transfer your settings to the database.  All of the settings
in those files can now be configured through the setup program and the
frontend "Setup" menu.
