STM32F407 discovery HSE crystal is always oscillating

Hi,

I've been using the STM32F4 discovery kit (the one that contains the STM32F407 MCU) and I've noticed something strange.
When I stopped the code at the SystemInit fuction and probed the HSE I saw that it was already oscillating although it hasn't been activated by software yet (I tried all the code lines before the SetSysClock function and I tried manually disabling the HSE).
Could someone explain this behavior?

Thanks in advance
