I have committed a change to master and fixes/30 to address the problem. 
People upgrading from 29 to 30 after this change will have the bookmark 
assignment preserved on existing frontends. Unfortunately people who 
have already upgraded or who upgrade using an older version of v30 will 
have to setup their bookmark keys again.

Sorry about the confusion. I had added a comment that an old setting 
should be removed on the next database upgrade but unfortunately I did 
not supply the necessary upgrade code that was needed to go with it to 
convert the old setting to the new one.
