View->Preferences->Backside needs to be unchecked. However, apparently it no longer does anything. I'll post it as a bug report in the v0.98 discussion forum.

Until it's fixed, you can give it a two-sided material, and for the second side of the material give it 0 trans and 0 spec.

Ah, I've been wondering what this option does. Okay, thanks for clearing this up.
