Me too. I figure any property subject to change at any time by any
script needs to be saved, set to what I need explicitly, then restored
when I'm done.
Thanks for the reality check, since I couldn't find mention of when it
changed either but felt (almost) certain I wasn't imagining that it had
previously been different.
Now that I think about it a bit more I wonder if that change was
concurrent with the change to how image paths are found, maybe somewhere
in the v3.0 time frame....
