You can turn on the fly code formatting off by unchecking Preferences->Text Editor->Behaviour->Enable On The Fly Code Formatting. It's still applied though! For example open the attached solution, check on the fly formatting is off and open Program.cs. Hit return at the end of line 9 (Console.WriteLine ("Hello World!");). Then type "Console.WriteLine(", without the quotes, of course! You must type this out in full and not use auto-complete for WriteLine. A space is inserted before "(". On the fly code formatting should be turned off, so I'd expect that not to happen :(

You're right that the setting should be respected there.

It's not really on the fly code formatting at that point (it's just inserting a space or not). On the fly formatting is what runs the formatter when typing ';' or '}'. 

Now the formatting setting is respected at that point as well.

For a quick workaround set the formatting style to something different - to Visual Studio .NET
