If that is the case, maybe it makes sense.  The check box typically represents state.  Something is on or off.  Well, the option menu represents state in itself.  It is the popup menu that is an imperative of some sort.  That imperative might be to check or uncheck an item when turning something on and off.

Blocking the checkbox might seem a little paternalistic, though.  On the other hand, you might feel you have just been saved from some GUI mistake and are glad LiveCode caught it for you.
