Camera view active layer moves to front (disable?)

In camera mode, when I click on a layer, it moves to the front, which is not the behaviour I desire. E.G., torso layer is below head. When I select torso layer, it pops in front of the head layer.

I seem to remember seeing that it can be disabled, so that the active layer stays where it should - am I remembering wrong, or does this pref exist?

Thank you in advance for saving my sanity.
