SubjectMouse generating two mouse click events instead of one

First of all, excuse me if this question is out of place, but I don't know for sure if this is a kernel problem. I'm
running 2.5.63-mm1 under Red Hat Phoebe Beta3 linux distribution. I have a Intellimouse USB Explorer mouse
attached and, when working on KDE3.1 I have noticed that if I single click the mouse very quickly, nearly all the
times two click events are generated instead of one.

I started to notice this with KDE3.1 menus: single clicking with the left button over the KDE button very fast (the
time elapsed since I press the button and then release it is practically zero) made the menu appear and then
disappear. If I single click the left button, but this time, I do it slower, it works as expected. I don't know of this is
a timing, threading or mouse event problem. Not only does this happens with buttons, but with other graphical
elements like checkboxes (single clicking very fast, makes the checkbox get checked and immediately,
unchecked). Has anyone experienced this before?

Also, I feel sorry I can't be more explicit, but I have never had this problem while running a 2.4 kernel. At least, I
have not noticed this in the past.

Best regards,

Felipe Alfaro Solana
