I am, actually, going the other way here.  I do very much like to have
state notes when I am really working on stuff.  But setting up state  
has the annoying side-effect that I am also prompted for notes when I  
want to flip through to some initial state, without taking notes.

Therefore, just so that you hate it more (:-) I have also introduced  
yet another
variable `org-treat-S-cursor-todo-seletion-as-state-change', and I  
will set
it (personally) to nil.  Then I can use S-right to flip through states  
without taking notes, and C-c C-t to switch to a state with taking a  

I call this not inconsistency or a bug, I'd call it choice :-)
