Bob.


The problem is two separate actions that are rather too intimately married; "mouseUp" and "mouseDoubleUp".


The engine is just not discriminating these reliably, and in a way, I cannot blame it. To work unambiguously, it would have to always wait for the doubeClickInterval to time out to determine what the user really wanted. This would work, I guess, but would cause a delay in response for every single click for an ordinary "mouseUp". This would be quite noticeable.


The HC way, old fashioned though it is, is best.

Are you handling MouseUp somewhere else in the message path? If not, then just 
let it pass.
