New Nodes placed randomly

Is there a way to stop new material nodes being placed randomly in the node window. It can be quite frustrating, particularly on smaller screens, when the node you just added requires a zoom out to locate. Is it a setting to place new nodes in the visible window, or is it something that might be added in a new release? No idea how to make a request for anything like this.
Help would be appreciated.

Update your Blender.

In version 2.67, new nodes stick to your mouse cursor until you click to drop them wherever you want… instead of being created right away wherever you click in the Add menu.
