Glowlight 3 -- disable double-press chapter skipping?

So these new Nooks have this behavior where two quick sequential button presses causes the stock reader to jump forward/back a chapter rather than a page. It drives me crazy but I otherwise like the stock experience. Anyone know how to disable this? Do I just have to root the thing and install FBReader?

Update: installing a custom reader isn't a solution, as it turns out. Cool Reader, FBReader, and KOReader don't recognize the keycodes. Guess I would have to edit and compile them to get them to work.

I know this sounds silly, but maybe you could stop pressing twice?

Haha, well, that's my only option right now. B&N said the same thing when I asked them. It's still quite annoying though, especially since I tend to jump back and forth a lot when I read. Maybe I'll try my coding chops.

I think the key buttons bounce. I'd been wondering why the heck my Nook had this leap-forward behavior so often. I've almost given up on the hardware buttons, just paging forward by touching the screen.
