Java doubleclick time in X.org/XFree86

The doubleclick time in Java applications should be read from GTK or KDE settings, but aren't.
I had this problem since I use Gnome 2.10.2 on Debian. Sun has a bugreport on this.

The solution is to add the following to ~/.Xdefaults:

*.multiClickTime: 500

and run:


xrdb -merge ~/.Xdefaults

to merge the newly created settings into the running X server. Settings will apply at next Java app. startup.

You can replace 500 with a number in milliseconds that you wish to set the doubleclick time(out) to.
