I see this bug too on a newly installed laptop.
However, I do not see this bug on another laptop, where Arch has already been installed.

The checkbox toggles the setting org.gtk.settings.file-chooser.sort-directories-first, but Nautilus actually uses org.gnome.nautilus.preferences.sort-directories-first for its views.

show-hidden-files already uses the file-chooser setting and toggles it correctly, while the Nautilus-specific setting got deprecated. I guess someone screwed up when trying to do the same to sort-directories-first.

Please take this to http://bugzilla.gnome.org/ .

The bug has been reported to the GNOME developers on 28th of May.
