Single-Click Folder Opening Setting in pcmanfm-qt Deactivates When Changing LXQt Color Palette

Expected Behavior
When changing the color palette in LXQt, the setting to open folders with a single click in pcmanfm-qt should remain active.

Current Behavior
Every time the color palette is changed in LXQt, the setting to open folders with a single click in pcmanfm-qt gets deactivated, not working until close and open session.

Possible Solution
Ensure that changing the color palette does not affect the setting for opening folders with a single click in pcmanfm-qt.

Steps to Reproduce (for bugs)
Open LXQt settings.
Change the color palette.
Crash pcmanfm-qt features
Context
This issue affects my workflow as I prefer to open folders with a single click. Each time I change the color palette, I have to restart system.

(Also happens for mantic.)
Preferences > LXQt Settings > Appearence > Widget Style

Qt Style or Qt Palette changes > Apply will temporarily disable single-item-click of pcmanfm-qt.

You need to logout and login again to restart pcmanfm-qt.
(If you are not using the file-manager for the desktop, you only have to restart pcmanfm-qt).

An alternative workaround is to also enable;
Preferences > LXQt Settings > Appearence > Widget Style > Activate item on single click > Apply.
(which I imagine will apply to all QT apps).
This way, you don’t have to restart anything.
