No, I Don't Want to Change My Default VSS 2005 Database

In Microsoft Visual SourceSafe 2005, on the "Open SourceSafe Database" dialog, is there any way to have the "Open this database next time I run Visual SourceSafe" checkbox unchecked as the default?

I use Visual SourceSafe 2005 on Windows XP here at work, and have about twenty different databases that I connect to with it. About 50% of the time, I want to connect to one particular database, so I have set that one to be my default when opening up the program. The other 50% of the time is split out randomly amongst the other nineteen databases.

Here's the annoyance: the Open dialog in VSS contains a checkbox that asks if I'd like the database I'm opening become my new default. This checkbox is checked by default, meaning that every single time I close and reopen VSS and try open up a new database, I have to uncheck this box so I don't change my default. It's a minor thing for sure, but when I'm doing this 10-15 times daily, it snowballs into a genuine bother.

So I ask: is there any way to have this checkbox be unchecked by default?
