Turns out we figured out the same exact thing late yesterday afternoon. On the kiosk, we were able to make the "double click hit zone" about 30% of the size it was, and that helped significantly. We think it will work now. Thanks for the confirmation!

imho it is an IE oddity. It cannot differentiate between a
double-click and a single-click.
Hence when you click twice fast enough onto the button it counts it as
a single click.

As far as I can observe my implementation 
has the same behavior as well.

They work perfectly fine on Firefox, needless to say :)

I think PPK has mentioned this issue somewhere in quirksmode.org:
It is not quite possible to distinguish between a single click and a
double click.
Moreover the events' cross-browser behavior may also differ.
