Problems when moving file to a subfolder

Bought PF5, evaluating PF6. So far so good, until today.
When I pick up a file to move it to a subfolder, as soon as the cursor crosses a subfolder that subfolder opens, even if I don't linger over it. The subfolder appears to flash a few times first, then open -- exactly like it normally does, except it all happens at blistering speed. The only way to move a file to a subfolder is to choose a cursor path that doesn't cross any other folders in the list until I reach the one I want.
FYI, changing the spring-loaded speed setting doesn't seem to do anything (though maybe this setting only modifies the delay before 'closing' the target folder. Restarting PF6 doesn't fix it, either.
In case it helps, I haven't been into preferences for three or four days. And have not installed any other software in the last few days.
Oh, I'm on a MacBook Air running Snow Leopard 10.7.4 and PF6.0.2 (1244).

    Indeed, that's controlled by the spring-loaded speed setting.
    Try to disable spring-loading altogether, quit and relaunch Path Finder and enable it again.
