A new problem surfaced today on Macbook Pro (Leopard) after I allowed the system software updater to run. Of course this could be pure coincidence as I did not notice the problem until working for half a day.

When I double click on a folder on the desktop it does not open.

So I Ctrl-click the folder and select "open." No problem, the folder opens.

Now when I double click on a folder within this folder it opens just fine. So the problem is confined to the desktop.

I log out and back in and the problem goes away, but comes back after I have been working for a while.

I disabled Spaces but it did not help.

Any suggestions would be most welcome.
