You've probably already checked the double-click speed in System Prefs 
and slowing that way down, but it's worth a mention. Also, Finder has 
its own prefs and there is a Spring-Loaded setting there that controls 
how long Finder waits before opening a folder you are hovering over. 
Maybe that also controls other speed issues. It's probably a dead-end 
but you could try setting that lower.
