KDE: Disable Desktop switch when Mouse on border

I'm starting to get pretty annoyed by the fact that KDE automatically switches to the next/previous desktop (or workspace, whatever you call it) whenever I move the mouse too close to the border, so how can I turn it off???

Open up kcontrol and go to the "Desktop"->"Window Behavior" section. The option you want is on the "Advanced" tab and is called "Active Desktop Borders". To turn off edge flipping altogether, set it to "Disabled".
