CC data prints into Midi Clips MY BIGGEST GRIPE

Hopefully 9 has fixed this

everytime i play with a synth (hardware analog, or hardware midi controller to soft synth) whoes knobs send CC data, then record a midi clip of notes, every knob i touch previously has implanted static automation in the clip (see photo).

Ableton got back to me and said something like 
"This is a useful feature, so you dont loose your patch"

I think its a downright annoying feature, that erases future patch refinements when you playback the offending midi clip.

It should be an option, not a default.

Does anyone out there have this same gripe?
Or are you all working around it with ease and im just behind the 8ball here?

    how long has this always been a feature? Because this hasn't been a problem for me until recently, but recently become a such a nuisance. 

    And the irony is it's doing anything but saving patches for me - it's consistently losing patches I'm in the process developing, as whenever I launch a previously recorded melody line, the unwanted underlying CC in that clip overwrites the patch I'm working on. Most times this creates a hideous train wreck patch with parameters randomly splurged from the old sound onto the lost one I was just working on. 

    Implemented correctly, as an option, this might be useful - although I would rarely use it. But as a non-optional default, it's just been an annoying disruption, and too often a destructive one.

    Clone your track with the CC data you like and then copy the notes into that clip.

    on the upside you can control patches.  And the CC data can usually be drawn in as envelopes.   I didn't see the problem.
