mouse unwanted double-click

I'm running Woody that I installed off my friends net-install CD. Running KDE 3.3.

The problem I'm having is with my mouse. Sometimes, when I single click, it acts like a double click. Most noticeably is when I click on an icon in my kicker and two versions pop up. It happens quite frequently. My default mouse is a MS optical Intellimouse. I've tried the following:

3 different mice: 2 MS optical intellimouse, one MS optical explorer (the one with 5 buttons), each in USB or PS/2.

Both KDE and Gnome.

In all the cases, the problem occurred, so I don't believe its a hardware problem, and I don't believe its a KDE problem, I'm guessing its an X problem. I was going to try installing Xorg, but i've read it's hard to do in Debian, so I figured I'd ask here first.

Does anyone have *any* ideas here? I can post any additional information if needed.


(edit: oh yeah, and I've had friends try and get the same results, so its not me accidently double-clicking. This doesnt happen in windows [been running linux for almost 2 weeks straight now, occasionally booting into windows])
