Bear in mind that the guts of konqueror and dolphin are shared code.  The 
difference is that dolphin now has several features that konqueror never had.  
If you don't like them and don't use them, you can continue to use konqueror 
(or mc, if like Duncan you prefer it).

Yes, very infrequently my mouse goes crazy - largely due, I suspect, to my 
ineptitude in getting off the button quickly enough.  I prefer single-click
