I'm definitely an mc user here (was it you I had the thread with 
earlier?), definitely preferring it for sysadmin type activities.  
However, I prefer dolphin or gwenview to konqueror for user type 
activities.  I thus don't use konqueror for filemanagement much at all 
anymore, only for web surfing.

Meanwhile, I've never seen that "feature" as regarding dolphin, only in 
general due to bad single-click delay settings (as Steven suggested), or 
when my wireless trackball batteries are almost dead and it's therefore a 
hardware problem.

If someone's used to double-click, tho, I can certainly see how single-
click could be very annoying/frustrating!  And Steven did mention where 
to configure that, so I'm mostly posting to throw in my 2 cents worth on 
the mc/konqueror/gwenview/dolphin thing. =:^)
