I have read the FAQ.
It looks like there is some information missing from your bug report that will be needed in order to solve the problem. Read the Contribution Guidelines which will provide you with a template to fill out here so that your bug report is ready to be investigated (I promise I'll go away then too!).
If you did not intend to report a bug but wanted to request a feature or brain storm about some kind of development, please take special note of the title format to use as described in the Contribution Guidelines.
Also make sure you are at the right place - this is the bug tracker of the official version of OctoPrint, not the Raspberry Pi image OctoPi nor any unbundled third party OctoPrint plugins or unofficial versions. Make sure too that you have read through the Frequently Asked Questions and searched the existing tickets for your problem - try multiple search terms please.
I'm marking this one now as needing some more information. Please understand that if you do not provide that information within the next two weeks (until 2017-03-25 12:50 UTC) I'll close this ticket so it doesn't clutter the bug tracker. This is nothing personal, so please just be considerate and help the maintainers solve this problem quickly by following the guidelines linked above. Remember, the less time the devs have to spend running after information on tickets, the more time they have to actually solve problems and add awesome new features. Thank you!
PS: I'm just an automated script, not a human being, so don't expect any replies from me :) Your ticket is read by humans too, I'm just not one of them.
I did some further investigation
The RepRap wiki's GCODE node (which is the closest thing available to a protocol definition - sadly), states this about
That sounds like it also includes the
Of course, we don't have a proper standard (hooray...), so all is just guess work. And since there's absolutely no way to determine what is the correct way dynamically, I fear there really is no way around yet another one of those horrible checkboxes that the settings dialog is already drowning in.
After some reading in various firmware sources (Marlin old and new, Repetier, Smoothieware) I've now changed the behaviour to mirror Marlin and Repetier by default (=

I have to admit that I'm not too happy about having to add yet another checkbox for that, but considering that we have two approaches in popular firmware here that are exactly the opposite of each other, there's not much choice.
