  Single click opening of selected items in file-selector is confusing

Status in GTK+:
  Fix Released
Status in gtk+3.0 package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Since the GNOME 3.18 upgrade I keep opening files by error in the gedit 
file-selector. It took me a while to understand, what's going on why sometime 
single click acts like double click it seems to be due to this change

  "file chooser: Allow activating without double-click
  Interpret a unmodified primary click on the selection like a double
  click. This makes it possible to activate a file or open a folder
  without using double-click."

  That has several issues:

  - the behaviour seems inconsistant, it's not easy to understand what's
  going on as an user (I first though my mouse buttons was having

  - if you double click on a selected directory to browse it, it opens
  it with the first click then open an item directly in the directory,
  which is not what you want (seems
  https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=757950 was meant to address
  that but it doesn't here)

  - if you select an item, switch to another windows and click back on
  the file-selector to focus it and manage to hit the selected item then
  it's opened...

  I'm unsure what the issue the change was trying to address, if that's about 
touch devices maybe the behaviour shouldn't impact pointer devices?
