This is a long standing issue in Evolution.  Let me redirect you to [1].

If you have some ideas on how to move the discussion forward please feel free to
contribute there.  It seems the original author had a different idea of what
"disabled" means than pretty much anyone else.  The issue was opened in 2003,
and as far as I can tell a clear consensus has yet to emerge.
