Mouse movement intolerance when double clicking

Filezilla is very intolerant to mouse movement when doubleclicking on a directory (in both the tree and the list). With my mouse it doesn't bother me because I don't move the mouse while clicking. However, with my tablet it's almost impossible to enter a directory because I can't double click without moving at all. It will try to move the directory into itself, which ofcourse isn't possible.

This doesn't seem to be a problem in the Windows version.

FileZilla uses wxWidgets which in turn uses GTK+ on *nix. The double click distance threshold is controlled by the "gtk-double-click-distance" GTK+ setting. You can probably change it using your .gtkrc file.

If it's a GTK application shouldn't it inherit the 'double click distance threshold' from my Gnome settings, like all other GTK applications? Filezilla is the only application with this problem. Besides, why would the default be absolute zero.

I also googled on how to set the 'gtk-double-click-distance' setting in the .gtkrc. I only get GTK API references.

The double-click signal clearly comes from GTK's GDK, which gets wrapped around by wxWidgets which in turn gets used by FileZilla. There's nothing I can do to change this.
