Summary17071: Array dropdown isn't working - always shows radio buttons

When creating or editing question, if I use Array layout, no matter what I select for option "Use dropdown presentation " in Display, the result is always radio-buttons.

Steps To Reproduce
  1. Create question
  2. Select array type -> fill out possible answers
  3. Choose either On or Off for "Use dropdown presentation" and Save
  4. Preview Question
Additional Information
  1. This happens after upgrading from 4.3.14+200824 to 4.4.4+210212. Before it worked fine.
  2. On existing question that were previewed correctly when used Array Layout and enabled "Use dropdown presentation", if I load them and just press "Save", they have the above mentioned result
  3. MOST IMPORTANT --> If I export the question, edit with notepad, find the relevant line that includes "use_dropdown":
    and replace <value><![CDATA[Y]]></value> with <value><![CDATA[1]]></value>
    save notepad and import the question to limesurvey ==> If I preview it is previewed correctly..
    If I then go to edit question and just hit save, it is then again previewd wrong, with radio-button instead of dropdown
