Transform gizmo obstructing selections

When I have the Transform gizmo tool active it seems there’s force field blocking my mouse cursor from being able to select anything behind the tool, like when adding to a selection. I keep hitting the tool itself. Is there a setting somewhere that lets me select through, or at least around the Transform widget gizmo tool thing? I’ve searched the forums but haven’t found the solution yet.

Selecting in 2.8 is a nightmare in general. A couple of examples: Lasso select is totally borked, and attempting to select a camera in camera view is a constant pain.

One reason that the original selection/action on rigth-click and left-click paradigm works well pre-2.8 keymap.
