You're correct that the feature can't be turned off right now. We
could add a preference, of course.
One idea is to never show an error until the caret leaves that logical
line. There's a fairly long delay before we show it when the caret
is still in the line, but it sounds like it's not long enough.
Thanks for the suggestion.
