You need to use "No local Command key".

That's a tricky one.  The Finder seems to handle mouse clicks in a 
different way to most other applications, so it's hard to get rapid 
clicks to register as such.  Try clicking once and using Command-O to 
open it instead.  While I'm on the subject, dragging Finder icons 
(and many other items) doesn't work properly yet, unless you install 
Adrian's vncPatches substitute.
