Default Updating to CM11

Just updated to CM11, all settings and home screens wiped.
I did a Nandroid backup right before the update so I'm back on CM10.2 with all settings restored and what not.

Every other time I've update CM my settings and homescreen layout+folders have remained untouched (only widgets need to be re-added).
Right now I'm using the new CM Installer, so once an update is downloaded OTA it's a one push update, the phone installs everything, reboots, reloads apps and you're good to go.
Did it wipe everything because it was a 'full' update in Android versions?

If I run Titanium and do a restore of just apps with data it won't fix what was wiped.

How can I update without loosing all my settings and preferences, as well as my home screen layout?
