I can confirm this. There seems to be a missing distinction between
the "Show App Menu (in topbar)" and "Show App Menu (in shell)".

I suspect that a fix would involve adding ! to both the getter
and setter of ApplicationMenuTweak, see:

Not sure what effect this would have on people upgrading though.
Would they get then get the opposite behaviour to their prefered

Given that the code seems to not be fixed in the lastest upstream
git, could you please file an upstream bug report at
http://bugzilla.gnome.org ?
Please report back here which bug number your report was assigned.
