May I ask you something?
I noticed the double click issue some time ago. I indeed solved it with the "Allow the apps below to control your computer » solution. But now, Aquamacs freezes my computer at opening and then, when I click on a menu (except Aquamacs menu) FOR THE FIRST TIME, I get the « spinning wheel of death" during 10 seconds before the menu drops down. After this "first time click wheel of death» the behaviour of the menu is OK.
Do you notice this?
