Didn't Sun's Java / Gnome/KDE have a long standing pissing match where Java ignored the double-click speed of your window manager on Linux?  This was due to Java only wanting to read your xrdb, and Gnome/KDE not wanting to write to the xrdb.

IIRC, the temporary fix was to do something like add:
*.multiClickTime: 500

to the file ~/.Xdefaults and run
  xrdb -merge ~/.Xdefaults
