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.

This looks like the same problem as bug 20681, as originally described: the Mageia Welcome window was chopped at the bottom so as to hide the two buttons there.
Writing from a Classic install of 8 May 2017, Mate desktop via GDM, MW looks OK from all viewpoints. Frank's Comment 2 I have seen & support; q.v.
but do not think it applies any more - accepting that MW is a mess under Gnome/Wayland; which might be an adaptation of 20681, or a different problem.
This bug looks closeable, either as resolved, or a duplicate of 20681 (or vice-versa).
Could we just start the Welcome app with 'GDK_BACKEND=x11'?
I've just done it, Live Gnome iso, wayland, from a terminal:
As expected, all is well.
Sorry, wrong bug. Should be under 20681.
At login i see this too now on my Thinkpad T42p, 1600x1200 screen, i586, Plasma
Fresh installed a month or so a go, updated today.
Window seem not chopped, there is visually room for the line
[ ] Show this window at start ( Close )
Repeatable between reboots. (or i am just "lucky")
Then i close it by window frame close button...
...And then i start it from konsole, the line is there! Repeatable every time.
Now i tested: Launch from konsole, uncheck the box so it do not launch at login.
Reboot, login, start konsole and issue mageiawelcome. Result:
It take several seconds until it displays (is much faster subsequent launches)
It always shows the bottom line OK.
Maybe just delaying launching it would be a workaround...?
mageiawelcome no longer shows option to disable on future boots (clean MATE net-install 4th Sept) =>
mageiawelcome sometimes do not show bottom line: option to disable, and close buttonKeywords:
