Hi,

let me guess. You clicked on the Mathematica-symbol in the
dock?

How about just drag it into the desktop (and with that remove it
from the dock) and then go to Applications and drag the Mathematica_7.0.1.app
into the dock?

If that doesn't work, can you specify when you click on what exactly? I have 
renamed my Mathematica directory here too and it works.

Cheers
Patrick
