It totally should. It's a crippled mode against the nature of
touchscreens. It's a pity that we even have it, but it was sadly
inevitable as our gui wasn't prepared for this.

And I highly doubt you can use the player totally blindly with it. You
get no physical feedback if you hit the right area, and hitting the
wrong area seems rather likely.

Anyway, I can live with that functionality, as long as it's a
disabled-by-default user setting. I would never use it myself though.
