Avoid checked categories on top

The default WordPress way of showing categories on edit screens in wp-admin is to show the checked categories on top. If you have multiple hierarchical categories this can be annoying, especially if you use custom taxonomies. A while back I created a custom taxonomy that shows countries > regions > cities. Checked cities ended up on top. Very annoying.

See what I mean? The box on the right is what I want.

Ilovecolors.com.ar wrote about it and has a fix involving coding but scribu made a Category Checklist Tree plugin which, of course, is way easier.
