Front_page settings is ignored

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f3b89840e10>

Since version 1.63 (28 April) the parameter front_page in config.php is ignored. A user will now see the ‘dashboard’.

config.php

$config['front_page'] = 'pages/devices.inc.php';
bash-4.2$ ./validate.php

Does anyone know if this is a bug or if with the release of version 1.63 it needs to be configured in a different way?
