Not to beat again that dead horse, but after trying for a couple of 
years to use single-click in konq's file manager mode, I gave out and 
enabled double-click. Now I no longer waste time trying to properly 
select the files I want by shift/ctrl/alt/meta/schmurtz-right-clicking 
and opening them by mistake. I really fail to see how single-click is 
user-friendly in a file manager, given that the basic action is to 
*select* a file, not to open it, and I'm quite sure it's just a 
"not-like-windows" feature that pleases zealots.
