Currently there is not a way to disable the automatic scrolling. We’ve often evaluated it, but we’ve never implemented it because of the equation “most wanted features divided by UI available area”. 🙂
The quicker solution to this problem may be adding the option in the configuration file, so that you would need to change it manually. We’ll have to spend more time to understand how to change the UI to offer the possibility to change the option through a checkbox.
Would this be fine for you?
