Dimension Popup Preventing Circle Creation

When creating a circle from an existing center point of another circle, a little dimension box seems to pop up that is intended to allow you to enter the circle diameter.  I have found that if I move my mouse quickly, this text box stays on the circle center point rather than follow my mouse pointer.  When this happens, I lose the ability to size the circle with my mouse and am forced to enter a dimension for the circle (which is a time waster, I don't want to reach for my keyboard every time I make a circle).  It only happens if I am moving quickly, it doesn't happen if I pause for a moment after creating the center point. 


This is getting pretty annoying, I constantly find this happening to me and it has been going on for a couple years now which has pushed me to finally ask about it.


Anyone know if there is a way to turn this circle diameter text box off?  I never use the feature, it makes no sense to enter the precise dimension for an unconstrained circle.
