Buttons slow to respond to second click, Why?

Why are buttons or fields with handlers very prone to not responding 
right away to a second click that is intended to invoke the  same 
action again ... forcing one to pause a bit and then click again... 
Even though the intended action to be taken by the invoked handler is 
already complete and a trivial one in terms of CPU requirements...  
i.e. one would expect the button to be returned to a ready state in 
milliseconds.... but instead the user is still forced to wait before 
clicking again to get the button to respond....

Is there some buffer setting that needs to be tweaked to allow for the 
second click, or some default delay interval that can be adjusted to 

Very annoying when using a button over and over again to process some 
small things such as delete a line in a list.
