Mouse sensitive mode line

From: Robert Marshall
Subject: Mouse sensitive mode line
Date: Wed, 7 Nov 2001 11:41:11 +0000

In GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (i386-msvc-windows98.2222)
 of 2001-10-29 on SWC-MAN-L004
configured using `configure --with-msvc (12.00)'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil
  value of $LC_TIME: nil
  value of $LANG: eng
  locale-coding-system: iso-latin-1
  default-enable-multibyte-characters: t

If I position the mouse on the buffer name I get 'mouse-1: previous
buffer mouse-3: next buffer' in the echo area. Which seems to be at
variance with the description in NEWS (claims inter alia that mouse-3
displays a buffer menu).

Also the 'previous buffer' does exactly that and if you've done (for
example) a version control operation and the *vc* buffer is still
around it visits that buffer which may surprise the user (unless
there's a variable for excluding these buffers I've not come across)

Finally if I type C-h k and then position the mouse over the buffer
name and click, I get the following (unhelpful) help
<mode-line> <down-mouse-1> runs the command ignore
   which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `subr'.
