This is not a bug, you need to add a second Skybox Viewpoint some place in-map with the "Object Special" flag checked. This turns it into the Skybox's center point, from which it can follow the player along the X/Y axes.

As a future note it helps to do your research fully before concluding that a feature is nonexistent, we have at least two wiki articles that tell you stuff about Skyboxes (here and here btw) which do indeed mention that "Object Special" does stuff.

That's an uppercase i, not a lowercase L, for the record. Also, it's pronounced "Yes-tin".
