Unable to run SQL Workshop scripts in the background after upgrading to APEX 5.1.

The "Run in Background" button is missing in the Run Script page.

To reproduce the issue:
- Navigate to SQL Workshop -> SQL Scripts.
- Open the script you want to execute in the Script Editor.
- Click Run in the Script Editor. The Run Script page appears.
- The Run Script page has only two controls in APEX 5.1:
'Cancel' and 'Run Now'. There is no 'Run in Background' control.


 Upgraded to APEX 5.1
