Not at all, but it was a rule for linux to give a maximum customization for a user. If not with GUI, 
but at least through config file.
Now it has gone. Someone adds new feature without any thoughts, that may be some one do not want to 
have it.
Of course I can manage to just click and do not drag at the same time, but the tendency is frustrating.
At least I can remove tooltips everywhere by adding gtk-enable-tooltips = 0, that .... .... I realy 
can't stand of.

Thanks for explanation.
