IIRC, it always did that. It predates the existence of auto flip view as an option. It seems OK to me to change it.

OK, I looked somewhat deeper into it, and it seems that there are two variables controlling the view, flipView (which represents the actual view, and is changed when you change the POV) and appData.flipView (which holds the command-line option for this). New Game ('Reset') copies appData.flipView to flipView. So it is as if the command-line option defines a default view to which you change every time you start a new game. (Even if
autoFlipView is off.)

This is a bit weird, but it still enables one to see the board from black POV always, by using -flip on the command line. Downside is that there is no way to alter appData.flipView from the menus. Perhaps I should also change appData.flipView whenever flipView changes by menu action (but not when the latter changes by auto-flipping). Then an intentionally chosen view would be preserved even over a New Game.
