True - the user still has to choose where to look. I suppose really this
is an "upstream" Gnome issue rather than Ubuntu-specific.

I take your point about mouse settings  - but my point remains that _for a
naive user_ , clicking behaviour would be expected to be under a "mouse"
heading rather than a "file management" setting.
