Jan Martin Wagenaar:
Thank you for the post.
I was able to reproduce this behavior, and will forward a report to Testing and Development.
One work around is to create a transparent box to lay over top of the text and group the box with the checkboxes.
At least, this will keep the check box from toggling when clicking the text.
Important to also note would be that even though the visual appearance is the boxes check when clicking the text, the record will not commit with the boxes checked after clicking submit.
I did try to place a transparent box over the labels (yet ungrouped) and though that does work for Safari (OSX & Win), Firefox (tested on OSX), it does not work for Internet Explorer on a Win platform, either grouped or ungrouped, nor when logging in with Guest priviliges.
Some further exploring learned however that a transparent GIF (placed as picture) does work as desired in Internet Explorer. So I guess that provides a workaround. Other formats might work as well.
