When I load the Workbench, it loads normally and I can use the mouse to select and open folders and load programs as expected.
What happens is, at random, if I double-click on an icon the icon will indicate that it has been selected but the second click does not get processed and the command to load the program from the Workbench disk does not occur. Clicking on any other icon results in nothing occurring at all.
Eventually, I notice that the mouse cursor will just freeze. The interesting thing is that the mouse clicks seem to be buffered because if I remove the Workbench disk from the internal drive and then re-insert it, there is then drive activity and the Workbench screen suddenly becomes active again and all my previous clicks get processed. Obviously, this behavior is annoying with the disk having to be removed and re-inserted each time to unfreeze the screen.
Can anyone shed any light on this as to why this is happening? The only thing I could find on an internet search was the following comment that someone made: "If the system clock is not "clean" one can expect these issues as the Workbench relies on the clock for timing." If anyone can clarify this statement, explain what is going on here and possibly recommend a course of action for resolution it would be greatly appreciated.
