Default Is it possible to disable benchmarking while torture tests are running?

Hi,
I've replaced my motherboard and updated my Prime95 to run torture tests on it before continuing with GIMPS.
I'd lilke to run a test for 24+ hours, however when I leave it for the night, it stops around 5:30 to do benchmarking. Like so:

Code:
[Main thread Feb 2 05:52] Benchmarking multiple workers to tune FFT selection.
[Main thread Feb 2 05:52] Execution halted.
[Main thread Feb 2 05:53] Timing 4480K FFT, 4 cores, 4 workers.  Average times: 36.85, 35.82, 36.03, 35.77 ms.  Total throughput: 110.75 iter/sec.
...
Is ther any way to stop this from happening while torture tests are running? Thanks.

I would argue that it should automatically be off for torture testing, without requiring the user to manually disable it (and then re-enable it for regular work again).
