I am very irritated with address autocompletion in Safari. How do I turn this annoyance off? It's preventing me from going to some sites.

For instance, if I want to go to one site, and its address is similar to one of the sites in my bookmarks list, Safari will insist on taking me to the address of that bookmark, and will not yield to my demands. (An example would be if I have a particular RSS feed, such as MacWorld, in my bookmarks. Now I try to type in so I can actually go to the real website, but Safari thinks I want to go to the RSS feed and stubbornly fills out the rest of it. I try to delete that from my toolbar address field, but Safari fills it right back in again!) How can I stop it from doing this?

(Note that I already have AutoFill completely disabled. All of its check boxes are deselected.)
