Gallery: Link to Media File selected, but link="file" missing from shortcode

  • I haven’t inserted galleries for a while, but just now, when I try to insert a new gallery, things work ok but not perfect.

    I select "Link to -> Media file", but the shortcode that appears in my editor looks like this:
    [gallery ids="7006,7007,7008,7009,7010,7015,7014,7013,7012,7011,7016,7017"]

    I use the text editor, but I could see it works the same on visual editor.

    If I switch to visual and try to edit the gallery, it does not detect the gallery type right, I get the autoselected "Link to" ->"Media File", but of course, there is no link="file" in the code and it does not work like that (it does not link the images to files).
    Switching (in visual editing) from default field to "Link to" -> "Attachment page" and back to "Media File" works, but those are extra steps I do not need to do.

    Please auto-initialize those variables, so it works from start without any extra steps.
