Change the default sort order in Nautilus

The default sort order in Nautilus has been changed to sorting alphabetically by name and the option to change this seems to be broken. For example I prefer my files to be sorted by type so I ran dconf-editor and browsed to org/gnome/nautilus/preferences. From there you should be able to change the value by using the drop down: Seems easy enough Unfortunately the only option available is modification time.
