How to fix a double clicking Logitech MX1000 wireless laser mouse

I've got an almost 7 years old Logitech MX1000 wireless laser mouse. After a few years from the purchase I started experiencing a rather annoying issue: every now and then a single click was followed by a quick misfired second double click. So it became hard to accomplish simple tasks like moving or resizing a window with this mouse. Now I have decided that I had enough and I started looking for a solution. Googling around it turns out that this is a very common problem among Logitech mouse users, e.g. [1, 2]. As you can read from those posts, you have basically two roads: either your mouse is still covered by the warranty period and therefore you can ask for a replacement, or you fix it by yourself (of course you can always choose to throw your Logitech mouse away and go for a replacement, but I won't discuss this option here :P)
