I really did not like this "feature" as well.  Not knowing enough xorg
configuration, and not having enough time to learn, i installed OpenSuse
on a different partition.  I, then, Backed uo my Kubuntu xorg.conf and
replaced it with the one from OpenSuse.  Needless to say, all those
unwanted features are a thing of the past for me now.
