Prevent for Quicksearch Users in Confluence 5.9.7

I've added the -Dconfluence.disable.peopledirectory.all=true.

I can see that this var is correctly setted under "System Info" Menú and the button People located at the top of Confluence is hidden after that but I'm still able to search users from the quicksearch field.


Here is an example of what i'm trying to avoid:

Your approach hide the quicksearch for the top bar so it a not valid solution for me...
