for uicontrols enable=off|inactive correctly prevents callbacks from being called, but for enable=off the widget should change color scheme to indicate it is ignoring mouse clicks.

The attached png gives a comparison between matlab and octave, and a script that produces this picture is attached as well.

I have a recollection that this has been reported before, but so far this issue did not surface in my bug search.
