DisableSelection -> Disables form fields

I'm a Web Developer, and I have to say, jQuery is fantastic!

Without a doubt, I'm a big supporter.

I've recently discovered a bug, however, which concerns the jQuery UI 'sortables' feature.

Essentially, when using .disableSelection to stop text being selected whilst the element is being sorted, any form fields (select boxes, inputs etc) are disabled. This has quirky functionality, as in FireFox only the proceeding input field is disabled, yet in Safari it appears that more fields are disabled -- in my case three; the first checkbox it came to worked fine.

Just thought I'd give you guys a 'heads up', see if it's an issue you're aware of or not. I'm using Mac OSX 10.4, and the latest versions of Firefox and Safari.

Also, would you be able to give users an option when using jQuery UI Dialog whereby they can turn off the 'jump to top of page', which is quite irritating when you have a lengthy page. I am aware that the solution is generally just to add 'return false' to the click function, but I execute all of my code on document.ready, and so this is not a solution that will work for me.
