Is it true that Selected Index Changed event ACTUALLY fires twice, once when you leave the row you are on, and once when you "highlight" the new row (the new row receives the focus) ?

What control are you referring to?  

I would rather seriously doubt that it does, in any case.  The change event is a single occurrence, much like a light bulb.  When you hit the switch, the bulb CHANGES from Off to On...it doesn't register a state of "in between".  So when, for example, a combobox has a selected index change, it's a single event going from Index A to Index B.  It doesn't go from Index A to Index NULL, then again from Index NULL to Index B.

For ListBoxes, the behavior is the same, and is extended by the SelectionMode:

One - SelectedIndexChanged is fire everytime an item is clicked.
MultiSimple - Fired everytime an item is selected OR de-selected.
MultiExtended - Fired everytime an individual item is clicked (selected or de-selected), but when holding the shift key and clicking, the event only fires once (even though multiple items may have been highlighted)
