Not a bug, it's just extremely rare that the two messages are used in
the same control.
Personally, I'd sooner at a "Revert" control than ask a user to
double-click, but maybe that's just me.
DunbarX's script will do the trick, but if you like you can account for
the user-settable nature of the double click interval by using the LC
global property named -- you guessed it -- doubleClickInterval.
To be uber-correct in such distinctions you may also want to take into
account the doubleClickDelta, but that may be overkill for a simple app.
