I have 4.3.2 and I have noticed that Xcode downloads iOS simulators and Device Debugging Support in the background. These files seem to average slightly more than half a gig, so they are not small updates by any means.


I have the checkbox "Check for and install updates automatically" unchecked, yet these sneaky background downloads continue. I've noticed that if I close Xcode during one of these downloads, instead of gracefully saving the position it is at and resuming when I reopen Xcode, the download starts over when I reopen Xcode. Oh, and I don't code for iOS, so all of that is a waste anyway.


So my question is, is there a way to stop these downloads since the checkbox seems to have no control over it?
