Or > should we make the entire row double click only? Or something else that > I missed? I've always felt this was a bit of user-experience failure on git-gui's part. Single-click should not behave differently just because you click the icon. I've seen many new git-gui users find this (mildly) confusing. I'd be happy if the click behavior was consistent across the entire row: single-click to select, double-click to stage/unstage, and there's nothing special about clicking the icon. I personally don't think it would be hard to adjust to that. I guarantee you that if double-click support is added while preserving the icon-single-click, users will get tripped up when they double-click the icon and accidentally stage two files. M.
