[ubuntu-uk] Mouse accessibility problem

I'm trying to solve a problem with double clicking the mouse for someone 
with jittery hand movements. The problem is that there is usually enough 
movement between their first and second clicks of a double click that it 
is registered as two single clicks in different places. This has all 
sorts of unwanted side effects, all of which include doing something 
different to what was intended. I have an idea of what it might take to 
address the issue - hold the mouse pointer still for the duration of the 
double click detection period. This would be a bit like sticky keys for 
the keyboard, but googling for sticky mouse doesn't get me very far as 
anyone who remembers ball mice will understand. Has anyone seen a 
setting anywhere which might do this, or maybe a program or any other 
way of doing it? Suggestions welcome.
