I don't believe that this is a duplicate - this bug is that the lens is enabled (and in the home lens) by default, so it is not fixed by adding an option to disable it. However, it's clear that this is not going to change at present, so I shan't get into bug status wars.

I'm not impressed by the whole episode - I think the change makes Ubuntu a worse product in order to increase Canonical's revenue. But I'm pleased that core developers responded to our concerns by at least providing a clear option to disable the 'feature'.
