Dear Adobe Gripe #3202

"Okay, before CS3, when I wanted to change the name of a layer, I'd double-click anywhere in that layer's tile that was within the horizontal space the name occupied. Now I have to hit this tiny, tiny area inside the text element itself. Or I accidentally launch the Layer Effects dialog. Again. It wasn't broken, why did you "fix" it?"

We've tweaked the hit area a bit. I haven't heard this complaint with Photoshop CS5.

One other thought is to use a different method to rename layers:

Rename Layer via a keyboard shortcut
