Please let us know here when the change is made. I will test it at that time.

I managed to finish the build/update before venturing out on the streets.

Time for another test. The second warning panel about "Are you sure?" should show "WARNING(doubleclicked):..." if it detected a double click that changed which avatar gets deleted.

The double-click issue discussed here has indeed been fixed. I have however uncovered another issue. When wrappedly clicking during all stages of deletion, it is possible to select the wrong avatar. This is not a major problem as the red confirm text does point out this too you.(we have to make sure people read it). Unforchently this happened once, I can not reproduce the problem. I hope reporting may help uncover another issue with the login screen. At one point in this test, it seemed that more than one avatar was selected(had a blue outline around his picture). This could have been what caused my issue.

Could the fix be changed such that the startup GUI is disabled or hidden once the "Delete Explorer" button is pressed? That way, it should be impossible to select anything...

The login UI is hidden when the dialogues are shown but I guess somehow they are still triggered? Or maybe I just did something strange?

Yay, testing! Thanks, rarified!

I created and deleted some avvies just now using my Win 7 laptop and couldn't make anything wrong happen, though my double-click speed is not particularly fast :lol: .

You can make it APPEAR as though two avvies have been selected, of course, by selecting one and then hovering the mouse over the other. Might this be what you thought you saw, Jamie? I guess a player might confuse themselves that way, but as Jamie says, the red confirmation dialog should stop you from making a mistake.

I normally use Linux but I do have Windows. For convenience, I tested on Linux but what I saw could be a Wine problem. So if nobody can reproduce it, we should ignore it.
