It's in the engine, it isn't a property, but it's been there for three
or four years and I think if it were an issue we'd have heard by now.
It's largely a developer thing, and very convenient. As others said, if
your app doesn't use the pointer tool then it's a non-issue. I suppose
you could trap mousemove and check if the command key is down and tool
is the pointer tool to avoid the problem.
