mageiawelcome no longer shows option to disable on future boots (clean MATE net-install 4th Sept)

Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Please fill in the tested version in the RPM package
I've actually seen this, and I think it's a painting/sizing issue. On a recent fresh install, I noticed that the first launch of Plasma showed a Welcome that didn't have the checkbox for disabling it on later boots. However, on subsequent boots it was there, at the very bottom of the Welcome window.
Something about the first boot truncated the bottom of the window and self-corrected later on.
Strange - yes that test MATE system now does have the checkbox, but it did not on first boot.
I now notice the checkbox is missing if I close mageiawelcome and launch it from the main menu.
In plasma if I run mageiawelcome from the menu it does have the checkbox, but if I check it, it fails to show on reboot.
This is very akin to the problems associated with GTK+ 3. Various drakx tools display different graphical behaviors when run from the installer, command line, or MCC shell.
Case in point would be the non-painting of disk partitions when diskdrake is invoked via commandline as root, but not in the installer or within the MCC environment.
Confirmed here under plasma.
Lowering the severity that I first had set to blocker because it does not occur everytime.
