Illustrator Pencil Tool Help

Is there a way to change the options for the PENCIL TOOL in ILLUSTRATOR so that it just draws a new line once you pick it up and put it down again - (no matter how close you are to the previously drawn line)?

Sorry - this is confusing to word - but if you have the same problem I am sure you will no what I am talking about.
For example - say I want to draw hash marks with the pencil tool.
As soon as I draw one line and try to draw the next one - it either a) replaces the first line or b) connects to the first line.
I want it to just keep the first line and draw a new one. It's more natural.
The only work around I have is to draw a line far away and then come back and draw the in betweens - but that is not as natural.
It drives me nuts. Thee has to be a way to fix it.
I am in CS3 on a Mac and CS4 on a PC.
Let me know.
