First of all, yes sunlight does disable this sensor somewhat just the same as it affects Sharp sensors (they also suffer oversaturation, just like the eyes in your head become oversaturated in bright sunlight) Thats the reason Im doing tests with different resistor values and also intend to repeat the tests with the detector in a photodarlington setup so I can minimize oversaturation while maximizing the light I want.
I do understand your concerns but somebody thats building something rather than using a generic off the shelf product is probably going to put time and effort into finding problems and trouble shooting and resolving them.
