Adobe’s plugin for Photoshop CS4 to disable canvas rotation via the trackpad

I’m linking to this because I’ve been stung by the problem too. The issue is with new MacBooks and MacBook Pros with the button-less trackpad. These trackpads have no dead zone like the old trackpads did. So until I get accustomed to using them, I often end up resting my right thumb on the lower portion of the trackpad where the physical button used to be. Because of this, once I go to move the cursor with the trackpad, I inadvertently perform a two-finger gesture, which Apple now recognizes on these new trackpads. Photoshop interprets these as either zoom or rotate actions, which is rarely what I want to happen. This plugin disables those actions in Photoshop, until Adobe engineers figure a graceful way to interpret (or otherwise ignore) two-finger gestures.
