Question How do I switch off the cursor wrapping around the desktop in KDE?

When I move my mouse cursor to the side of the screen, KDE jumps to the next desktop like the desktops are on a wheel and I can spin it with my mouse cursor. This is pretty cool and all but I wish to switch it off as the pager does just fine.

I found an option in kcontrol under window behavior called "desktop navigation wrap around". I unchecked this and now the desktops are not in a complete circle anymore. They stop wrapping around once you get to the end or beginning.

How do I switch off this feature so my mouse doesn't switch my desktops on me?

Thanks for any help.
