Version: 2.6 (using KDE 4.6.3)
I have KDE set to open folders on double-click, and while this is generally respected within Gwenview, one exception is the Start Page.
The Start Page's "Places" icons (Home, Root, Trash, etc.) require just a single click to open, which is disconcerting because they look like folders, so I naturally double-click on them. This results in me selecting some other folder that appears beneath the Start Page icon inadvertently.
Steps to Reproduce:
Start Gwenview, Select "Places" on Start Page, and click an icon. Only an issue if folders are set to open on double-click.
Folders open after just one click.
Folders should open after two clicks.

This was done on purpose. There is no reason to require double click on the start page because one cannot select multiple items there. The pointing-finger cursor was supposed to provide a hint of this behavior.
Maybe the start page should "swallow" the double click to avoid propagating the second click?
It's really an issue of consistency - I double-click on the folders in Dolphin, I double-click on the folders in Gwenview, and I always forget that I should just single-click on the Home folder (or whatever) on the Start Page.
Swallowing the second click would definitely help if you don't want to change Gwenview's basic behaviour.

Follow KDE settings for double-click vs single-click on start page as well
@Christopher: After playing around with various settings, I realized the UI
of the start page is too similar to the thumbnail view to use a different
