It seems to work fine with LessTif. After compiling on a Solaris 8
environment I tried it too on a GNU/Linux system. And on the GNU/Linux
system within a Open Motif environment I could observe the same
behavior. In the case of the c-mouse-1 case you have to release the
control key so that selection of the buffer in the popup buffer has an
effect.  Personally I don't think that this is a critical bug. I am
working on such a box very often and to the beginning I wondered what
is wrong. But I adapted myself very fast to the inconvenience of the
system. And now I don't think it's annoying. I am always releasing the
control key and then all works fine. Anyway the Xaw and the LessTif
behavior seems to me a little bit more accelerated and reasonable.

In the case of c-mouse-3 (the edit menu) all works fine for me on all
three test environments. I don't have to release the control key. 
Copying and cutting works fine.


Here the three tested versions:

GNU Emacs 21.1.2 (i586-pc-linux-gnu, Motif Version 2.1.30)
=> (false)
GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (sparc-sun-solaris2.8, Motif Version 2.1.0)
=> (false)
GNU Emacs 21.1.3 (i586-pc-linux-gnu, GNU/LessTif Version 2.1 Release 0.93.14)
=> (true)
