I'm not so sure that it disturbs that fungus, I think it may just disturb
the fish, period.  I, too, have had nothing but bad experiences with
Melafix.  I suspect it killed an angel I was treating.  I was also trying it
on goldfish, and they appeared to react badly to it - tails reddened, they
got sluggish.  Symptoms disappeared once the medication was removed.  There
are also at least 2 others I've talked to on another list that have had the
same experience - one person thinks it wiped out her entire tank  None of us
are newbies, either.  We've had at least a couple years experience, enough
to know to keep an eye on the water parameters, etc.  We couldn't find any
other reason for the deaths/problems but the Melafix.
