Unhappy Auto Update

Yeah (misunderstood)
Iv'e got the same frustrating issue with Android Market updating itself.
The problem is that unlike other apps Android Market does not have the little
check box to uncheck auto update.It just updates whenever there's an update available.
Same goes for Google Maps.I don't know why that is but I do know that it's darn irritating!

Post Tweak to block update
1) Unistall updates which are downloaded for Market App / Playstore
2) login as root from shell : "su"
3) create empty file at : "cat > /data/app/com.android.vending-1.apk"
4) make it immutable / lock it : "chattr +i /data/app/com.android.vending-1.apk"
