I use 4.1.5 on Mac OS X.  I do not have the problem that you describe.

You appear to be getting a triple-click when you double-click; perhaps 
contact bounce in your mouse.  Are you having similar problems in other apps 
such as MS Word?  

I suggest that you change your double-click speed setting (Apple/System 
Preferences.../Mouse/Double-Click Speed) to see if that helps.  Move the 
setting towards Fast.
