Server 2003 AD/UC double click doesn't open properties

I know...it's minor, but it annoys the heck out of me.

On *some* servers, when you drill down to a user in AD/UC and double click the user in the right-hand pane, instead of opening the Properties, it simply expands the container in the left-pane.

A right-click on the objects shows that "Properties" is not bolded as the default double-click action.  There is no default action.

Can this behavior be controlled or changed?

ugh..I figured this one out:

View-->Users, Computers, Groups as containers.

If checked, then the users will expand in the left pane, and Properties is not the default double-click action.  If unchecked, then users are NOT expaned in the left pane, and the default action IS to open Properties.

Hope this helps someone.
