Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a folder in Nautilus with a few folders in it
2. Make sure there is some empty space in that window
3. Pick a folder icon to open, but don't click on it yet
4. Quickly: click on the empty space, then on that folder icon
Actual Results: The selected folder opens.
Expected Results: The folder should simply be selected, since the double-click
was not performed at the same pixel location.
To see the proper behavior, click on the empty space, wait for
2 seconds, then click on the folder icon.
I haven't looked at the code, but it seems that the canvas
widget must be registering double-click events even for
clicks that are not local to each other. What isn't clear is
if this is a Gnome library problem, or specific to Nautilus.
I'm moving this bug to http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=95213
Closing on Red Hat level. We will get a fix with new upstream versions.
