Photoshop CS6: Move tool targeting imprecise

Move Tool annoyance in Photoshop CS6.
I use the move tool alot in my work, with high fidelity mockups for interface design. I rely on precision and predictability in my workflow. In Photoshop CS6 with the move tool set to auto-select layer, i would suspect the move tool to select the excact element im targeting at which it doesn't. it automatically selects nearby elements, which is a HUGE annoyance and disturbance. It ruins the workflow, and it's unpredicable.

Is there at least an option to remove this behaviour and just make it precise as in previous versions of photoshop?

Have to send it via email... didn't work in the browser for some odd reason.

Just trying to keep this alive here.

Chris T. had some good thoughts on increasing the DPI of the document, working on it larger for more accurate selections, then returning it to the intended DPI/size, as another workaround (thanks Chris).

If anyone else wanted to try selecting that little triangle from my screen shot in CS6 at 100% document zoom, I can send along the PSD for experimentation. It'd be good to further affirm that it can't be selected, and that this problem isn't something odd on my system!

Definitely not an issue with your system atwixtor. I've been waiting for a fix for this 'feature' for years now.

Any progress on this from Adobe? I'm on Photoshop CS6 version 13.0.6.
It's the only major issue I have left with CS6.

What?! no fix?! How unlike you guys, Adobe. I guess if you don't have a CC subscription you don't deserve a functional product. A thousand bucks doesn't buy much these days, does it?

I found a solution ! before dragging object with move tool click ctrl \ command and then there is no auto correct object placing!
