Actually, the setting wasn't changed. It just didn't appear until you
upgraded X (the new X does things differently--not sure whether it's a
bug or what). So, you set it for the first time after upgrading. It
shouldn't be required unless you have multiple displays (and the newest
versions of Myth trunk and 0.20-fixes SVN) now work with even the new X
to find out if it's needed, so you'll see the setting disappear again
and it will do the right thing.
