Shiny Server Pro: r_path not settable via allow_app_override

As described here: shiny_app.conf/r_path issues

I am trying to use multiple versions of R in Shiny Pro by modifying r_path in the application's .shiny_app.conf file and it doesn't appear to be working.

I added the following to the server conf:
allow_app_override true;

And this is the entire .shiny_app.conf:
r_path "/home/dev/R-3.4.3/bin/R";

Is there something I'm missing here?

I want to add that I think this might be a bug in the server code. I have verified that the server is correctly reading and acting on the file .shiny_app/conf by setting the parameter required_user. Does anyone have any insight into what might be happening?
