In Elementary OS Freya (0.3.2), if an item is middle-clicked on in Window Overview (super + w), such as Google Chrome or Terminal, that process is closed/killed. Is there anyway to disable this feature?

I have a trackpad with a large middle click zone. Accidentally closing windows is the worst.
So, I disabled middle click in terminal:
xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 99 3 4 5 6 7 8 9"
This takes effect immediately. Then if I start using a mouse, where again I want middle click to work, I run the reverse command:
xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9"
You can put
pointer = 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 into the file
~/.Xmodmap to setup a persistent default that will take effect when you login.
I'd LOVE to find a better fix.
