Although the above solution would work I think this setting should be
more specific. Modifying .orbitrc will effect all apps that use ORBit
whether they are GNOME related or not. ORBit is not specific to GNOME. A
GNOME control center option that effects all ORBit apps is just wrong.

I can just imagine how often "Why won't ORBit helloworld() work over the
network" will appear on the ORBit mailing lists if this is implemented
this way.
