thanks for the report, that option was removed due to the unmantaince and upstream thinks the arithmetic mode replace it also, but yes the manual needs to be updated, upstream bug about the removal of the option is available here: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=500994 ; marking this as low priority, thanks.
