I'm sorry, this got sent a bit before I'd completed it.  The trouble
is that I want to run Action1 if I single-click on a date whether or
not it's a changed date and I want to run Action2 if I double-click on
a date whether or not it's a changed date.  However I don't see how I
can do this because of the order in which the event handlers are
called.

Is there any way to manipulate this so I can get the result I want? 
At the moment the only way I can see to do it is to wait a while after
a click and then look at what actions occurred but this seems a real
bodge.
