How do I disable swipe down gesture?

I have tried searching the forums for "gestures, Swipe down" and no luck. But i have an annoying issue that is sometimes a bug. Every since the first official release, when I swipe left or right, the slightest deviation to a down angle - it accepts the gesture as a swipe down. This gesture (I believe by default) goes to list view. I do not like this feature and want to disable it. Sometimes when I do it unintentionally (I'd say 66% of the time) it actually freezes in that mode. I cannot go back to album art view (main screen) or change tracks. I have to force close Poweramp to get back to normal. So to sum it up, I keep accidentally swiping down which is a feature I dont want and it happens to freeze Poweramp sometimes.

Sadly you can't disable any of the up/down/left/right gestures in Poweramp v3 like you could in v2. Longer-term, I think there are plans to allow some gestures to be customised, but for now they do what they do.

That said, I find it very difficult to do this by accident. You have to really try hard to manage to turn a horizontal swipe into a vertical one - and if you do start to see it happening, just take your finger off the screen before you complete the move.

FWIW this is frequently an issue when assigning star ratings, due to the position being so close to the edge, and rating assignment requiring a drag gesture.
