Thank you for the additional clarifications. The lock behaviour I initially described was means to avoid the undesired effect you describe, without actually disabling the horizontal scrolling hint. Unfortunately, I can't suggest a workaround for this behaviour, currently. If the uservoice suggestion gathers some votes, we will revisit this implementation for future releases.
I am sorry for the inconvenience,
