Can one suppress the display of dataset objects triggered by mouseover (datatips)?

Can one suppress the display of dataset objects triggered by mouseover? This causes great inconvenience under MacOSX because large dataset objects do not hide quickly - leaving the user unable to see the edit window (or anything else) for several seconds while it is obscured by a large yellow variable display.

Is there a way of figuring out who is calling the function? Then this would speed up things...
if CallingFunction == DataTipInEditMode
% Run regular code

Mike's blog may be of service here: Exploring your data with datatips.
To turn on datatips in edit mode (and conversely to turn them off), go to Preferences -> Editor/Debugger -> Display and select Enable datatips in edit mode.

It looks like one can control datatips in edit mode, but not in debug mode. I'd like to turn them off in both.
