Thanks for your work.   I replied in one of the bug reports but
I'll say the same thing here for a wider audience.

When you add a new boolean preference it should ALWAYS default to
FALSE (not TRUE).  The reason is that there's no way to differentiate
between "schema item does not exist" and "schema does exist and user
set it to FALSE".

So in your particular case, the new schema item should be changed
to "Only Display Leaf Account Names" with a default of FALSE, instead
of "Display Full Account Path" with a default of TRUE.
