Is there a way to NOT have FCP7  auto create a new project at launch?

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation

I can't find it anywhere in User Preferences, but is there a setting somewhere in FCP that will open only the Browser and Viewer upon launching FCP7, and NOT generate a sequence/timeline and Canvas automatically?
Unchecking "Bring all windows to front upon launch" doesn't do it. Neither does unchecking "open last project upon launch".
I'm trying to get at launch, just the browser and Viewer, like you get when you close an open project, but don't shut down the application.
I know you can hold down the OPTION key while double-clicking the FCP icon on the dock, and that does it, but is there a setting somewhere in FCP so you don't have to hold that key upon launch?
Thanks.

Hold the Option key while you launch the application.
