[MAC OS GRIPE] editing filenames in MacOS finder, three state fields

It's just too hypersensitive. sometimes it works correctly sometimes not.
mostly not. Selecting either the text or the icon most often launches
whatever it is. Driving me nuts. And when that happens while trying to drag
from a folder of zips, it selects ALL of them, then tries to launch all. You
can imagine the mess and cleanup, and impossible to stop once started
(without pulling the plug)

Is my 12 core too fast? Does the speed of the machine have anything to do
with the timing?
