Purchase order proposals generated from planner using minimum stock rules (V7)

We are using V7 and have the following issue: when using the planner from the warehouse menu and checking the minimum stock rules the system generates purchase proposals that can be viewed in the purchasing menu. They are called 'proposals' but effectively are 'purchase orders' since they are considered as 'available' stock moves and are considered when looking at virtual stock levels. We normally combine the individual proposals from the same supplier into a combined purchase order. This cancels out the purchase orders initally generated and creates a lot of cancelled stock moves which results in a ton of garbage entries in the stock move tables. I had hoped to find a simple switch that would enable a choice to either generate 'purchase order proposals' or generate 'confirmed purchase orders'. Unfortunately I haven't found it but I can't be the only one seeing this OpenErp feature as a problem ?  Anyone out there having the same problem and/or a solution / workaround ?
