There doesn't seem to be a way to disable the on-the-fly preview
feature.  Gack.

I have done so and filed a bug in the emacs bug tracker.

Unfortunately string-rectangle-history appears undefined.  I will need
to expand the prior code import a little further.  I haven't dug into
what it will take to really revert to the previous for me.  I'm
actually mostly just using the previous emacs 24 most of the time and
therefore able to avoid it.  However you have shown me that I should
be able to hack this back in using the previous code such that I can
keep my sanity moving forward.  Once I actually do figure it all out I
will post a follow-up with the details.

Thank you for your help!
