After updating to 1.4.0.5 The game will autopause while in the settings menu, regardless of whether it is on or not. According to memory, this should not be the case. I distinctly recall this not being the case earlier in my playthrough of 1.4, and I did not see anything in the patch notes regarding this.
Not to be confused with the inventory menu, which works fine.

I think this was an intentional change so that you can tamper with - sometimes quite fiddly or maze-like - GUI/game settings without getting slaughtered. That said, I cannot confirm as to whether or not this is an intentional change (though I would assume so)

The Settings menu is now always-autopause, as of 1.4.

The autopause setting impacts other elements such as the inventory or bestiary menus.
