Thanks, I thought it was just me.

I use something like your "STAAAAHHHHPPP-procedure" and don't know of any way 
to do it using the plug-in, I don't think it can be done.

Part of your hypothetical problem might be to aggresive vSphere DRS settings 
that triggered these purely hypothetical vMotion jobs in vCenter, I find the 
default DRS setting to be way to jumpy and tone that setting back a bit.
