I had this issue a few months back. It was the mouse left-clicker packing in. A new mouse solved the problem. Try using a different mouse and see if the problem goes away.

Where is the mouse configured in slackware for X? This is my xorg.conf file:

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "aticonfig Layout"
	Screen      0  "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0
EndSection

Section "Module"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier   "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
	Option	    "VendorName" "ATI Proprietary Driver"
	Option	    "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor"
	Option	    "DPMS" "true"
EndSection

Section "Device"
	Identifier  "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
	Driver      "fglrx"
	BusID       "PCI:2:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
	Identifier "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0"
	Device     "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
	Monitor    "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
	DefaultDepth     24
	SubSection "Display"
		Viewport   0 0
		Depth     24
	EndSubSection
EndSection

My xorg.conf is generated by nvidia. the appropriate section is :

Section "InputDevice"

# generated from default
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

From CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT
Quote:
The version of Xorg in Slackware 13.37 will not (in most cases) require an
/etc/X11/xorg.conf file. Input hotplugging is no longer done using hal;
instead, it now uses udev for input device detection and keyboard mapping.

/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ is the "packaged" configuration directory; all
files ending with ".conf" in this directory are used by the X server
unless there is an identically-named file in the local sysadmin directory.
The local sysadmin config directory is /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ - all files
ending with ".conf" in this directory are parsed.


There are several default config files in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/:
* 10-evdev.conf
a "catchall" file for input devices using the evdev driver; this
should work for most hardware in the absence of a better driver
* 50-synaptics.conf
overrides the earlier 10-evdev.conf file and uses the synaptics
driver for all touchpads

* 50-wacom.conf
overrides the earlier 10-evdev.conf file and uses the wacom driver
for Wacom tablets
* 90-keyboard-layout.conf
this sample ("normal" en layout) keeps the "old" default of
allowing Zap'ing the Xserver.
If you need to modify any of these defaults, then copy the relevant file
from /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ and edit the
copy.

You can still create an xorg.conf file if you wish, or you can create some
minimal xorg.conf snippets with only the specific contents that you wish
to override (as an example, to use a binary-only video driver) as separate
files in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directory.

Are you using KDE? KDE has an option to treat single clicks as double clicks in the file manager, or any other file managing context. To disable go to System Settings->Input Devices-> Mouse->General and make sure "Double click to open files and folders" is selected. I don't know if this is even applicable in your situation, but I am posting it just in case.

According to Zordrak, you should take that section out:
