    i know this is over a year old BUT...it is still a problem. I use fill handle quite often particularly for sorting data but the double click sending me over 1000 cells away is more than an inconvenience!

    Since "fill handle and cell drag-and-drop" is surely needed by most users, it's no solution to turn this off. It's a very bad idea form MS guys to combine the option for a relatively useless but bugging feature with important features :-[.
