When I draw a box that's 4x2. The transform panel usually confirms this measurement by showing W:4 (width) and H:2 (height). The new version adds the stroke measurement to this which makes it confusing. So if I have a 7pt thick stroke on a 4x2 box, it shows it as 4.0972x2.0972. All previous versions never added the stroke to the object size. Can anyone tell me how to disable this feature? Or am I going to have to live with this?

With Illustrator, check the stroke panel (Command + F10) and align stroke to inside.
