Control key for move tool toggle behaviour

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop: Move Tool - Toggle auto select shortcut changed

The new Control key toggle between Auto Select Layer, Auto Select Group raises a lot of problems and it's really not as useful as it was previously.
Having many layers I use the Auto-Select option. I select my layer and then hold Control to drag it (works perfectly for really small layers). But now, holding control selects the whole group. Not even the closest parent, but the top one (this is not useful as many designers keep things tidy by having groups within groups).
As a designer who's been using PS for over 15 years, this is the first time I am completely dissatisfied with an interface change (I even tolerated the changing of the shortcut key for blur&smudge tool), the first time I am complaining.
Please change it back or find another solution, or give us a checkbox to tick to revert back.
