I tried the Dapper i386 Desktop Cd live environment and experienced the
same problem :

 doubleclick on the floppy icon na dit takes about a minute to do
something and then it does NOT open the floppy contents. Doubleclicking
it again finaly opens the contents. (file list window).

The same happens with the other floppy unit, which is an ATA floppy

During the long "something" it does not wait on error or like, but
actually reads the floppy. Click..click...click... like when formatting
or doing a sector copy. After a while I started counting the clicks and
counted 21. So there were at least 40 clicks or more, meaning, at least
half of the floppy was read in.
