Google and privacy again

How do you turn off the 'enhanced' option on the Google Toolbar, if you don't want your URLs reported to the mothership? Disturbingly, http://www.benedelman.org/news/012610-1.html suggests you can't unless you uninstall the toolbar. It's kind of like a roach motel for URL privacy and the notion of a temporary option to disable tracking that doesn't work until you restart the browser (when the tracking will restart) is an exercise in Kafka-style logic...

Maybe I should have a privacy_rant tag to save time...
