Whereas people who have used my KDE desktop when I used to use single-click 
were completely baffled as to why double-clicking the icons caused two 
windows to pop up.

They're used to Windows, where even in single-click mode Windows recognizes a 
stray double-click and only activates once.  I'm not sure if this is still an 
issue but double-click has proven more user-friendly in my experience.
