Single Clicks Seen as Double Clicks

Just set up a nice new 64-bit desktop. Weird shit: Firefox menus won't open; Web-page drop-down boxes won't drop; then pastes into BASH are double each time — the penny drops. xev confirms that each mouse click is interpretted as two clicks. xorg.conf needs some work. . .  

The mouse is a Dell USB optical; I have in place only the default xorg.conf mouse configuration. This fixes things:

  Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Configured Mouse"
        Option          "CorePointer"
        Option      "Device"      "/dev/psaux"
        Option      "Protocol"      "ImPS/2"   
        Driver      "mouse"
Probably Xorg was not figuring out that Protocol should be ImPS/2.
