SharePoint 2010: Clicking the icon in Type column is highlighting the item instead of launching the document

Symptom:

In a list view of a document library in SharePoint 2010, when the document icon for an item in the Type column is clicked, the document is not offered for opening. Instead, the row for the item is selected. This behavior is different from SharePoint 2007 where clicking on the document icon opens the document itself.
